Macpherson's Cluny Bottled 1920s-1930s 5cl
22 October 2019
A miniature bottle of Macpherson's Cluny Scotch Whisky, sealed with a cork stopper. This was guaranteed distilled in Scotland by John E McPherson & Sons. Ltd. We estimate this was bottled in the 1920s to 1940s.
Please note, there is no size or ABV stated on the labels.
This bottle is from a large collection of miniatures purchased by the seller at an auction in 1979. The collection is mainly comprised of blended Scotch whiskies and single malts bottled in the first half of the 20th century.
Whisky blender John E Macpherson & Sons was founded in 1857. The company's main brand, Cluny Scotch Whisky, was named for the traditional title of the Chief of the Clan McPherson, who at the time was founder John E Macpherson's cousin. In 1952, the company was acquired by Scottish and Newcastle Breweries Ltd.
