Black & White Spring Cap Bottled 1940s 37.5cl
A small bottle of Black & White blended Scotch whisky sealed with a spring cap closure. We estimate this was bottled in the early 1940s.
This carries a royal warrant by appointment to HM The King.
The back label reads:
At the British and Foreign Spirits Select Committee, appointed by the Government in 1890, the Chief Analytical Chemist of the Government (Dr Bell, C.B) spoke in terms of high appreciation of a sample of Scotch Whisky, saying "From the general fine character of the sample there is reason to believe that it has been warehoused for many years etc." Fifteen Years Later the Medical Magazine (Oct. 1905) says "The statement made by Dr. Bell is as true to-day as it was then." For more than 40 years to date years to date (Jan 1941) a leading expert has reported every month without exception, ''that the analytical figures are normal, and that the taste and flavour are of the usual high order.''
Please note there is no size stated on the label, but it appears to be 37.5cl.
