1 bottle Black Bottle. Bottled circa 1930 by Gordon Graham & Co Ltd. No box. Early screw cap with branded lead foil capsule. No capacity stated. 'Pre War Strength' which is equivalent to 80 proof. Level in neck. Remarkably good condition for age.
This is not only the oldest bottle of Black Bottle we've ever seen but also one of the earliest examples of a screw cap used on any bottle of whisky we've so far encountered. A totally stunning and strikingly immaculate example with a perfect filling level. The bottle was discovered by the vendor in a cupboard in their cellar over 30 years ago. It had remained there, standing upright its entire life in its original wrapping paper. This goes a long way to explaining its amazing condition. This is likely a unique opportunity to acqure such a beautiful, historic and immaculate example of this iconic brand of blended whisky.
