Ballantine's 12 Year Old Bottled 1960s - Duty Free 75.7cl / 40%
A bottle of Ballantine's 12 Year Old Very Old Scotch Whisky, blended and bottled by George Ballantine & Son Limited. This was bottled for the duty free market, we estimate in the 1970s.
This lot comes from a large collection built up during the 1970s in Kent, England. For 50 years the owner displayed the collection in the family’s home bar, with later additions being gifted to the collector by friends and family. Then in 2021 the collection was dismantled to be sold at auction. Many of the bottles have stickers that show the original price paid and the date (month/year) of purchase.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear. Please note, there is some tape residue around the cap but the original seal is intact.
The Whisky.Auction team has inspected this lot and found it to be suitable for sale. However, please note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. Older bottles often contain small amounts of sediment. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
