Blended Scotch Whisky

Blended Whisky Auction

Bottle Auction


A half-bottle of Black & White blended Scotch whisky sealed with a spring cap closure. We estimate this was bottled in 1955 or 1956.

This carries a Royal Warrant by Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen.

The back label reads:

Select Committee

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 (October 1905) said "The statement made by Dr. Bell is as true to-day as it was then." For more than 50 years to date (Jan.1956) monthly expert reports have without exception borne testimony to the consistently high quality of our Whisky.
