Bell's Christmas 2005 Ceramic Decanter Silent Protest 70cl / 40%
A bottle of Bell's 8 Year Old Scotch Whisky presented in a Wade porcelain decanter and released for Christmas 2005.
This decanter tells the story of the bell at St Etienne Church in Sens, Burgundy. When the King of France, Clotaire II, heard the bell, he was so enchanted by its sound that he ordered it to be removed and taken to Paris. Once in Paris, the bell refused to give forth any sound. The frightened king ordered the bell to be sent back to Sens, where it rang out once more.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear. This appears to have a good fill level.
This decanter weighs approximately 1.43kg.
