Peter Dawson Old Curio Spring Cap Bottled 1940s - Julius Wile & Sons 75.7cl / 43.4%
A bottle of Peter Dawson Old Curio blended Scotch whisky, sealed with a spring cap closure. This was bottled for US firm Julius Wile Sons & Co. Inc., New York., and imported by Adams Mitchell Old Customs House Inc., Boston. We estimate this was bottled in the early 1940s.
Peter Dawson was a family operation established in 1882, which built Towiemore distillery in 1897. In 1925, it was acquired by DCL, where it held the license for Ord Distillery until 1982. Bottles of 1940 Peter Dawson whisky sealed with a short metal capsule were recovered from the sunken cargo of the S.S. Politician, whose wreck in 1941 inspired Compton Mackenzie's 1947 novel, Whisky Galore.
