Mackies Ancient Brand - 1940s

Shipping Weight when Packed: 3.00 KG

1 bottle Mackie's Ancient Brand. Bottled 1940s for US market. White Horse Distillers. Spring capsule with branded foil seal. Federal law glass moulding on rear of bottle. In original cardboard presentation box. 4/5 US Quarts. 86 US proof. Level base of neck. Some wear to box appropriate to age but overall remarkable condition and fill level for age. 

Mackie's was a small brand from the White Horse stable, the main constituent malt of which was the fabled Malt Mill; a distillery within Lagavulin that operated between 1908 and 1962. There have been a few examples of Mackie's appearing on the market over the years but this is by far the most pristine example we've ever seen; particularly the filling level which sits almost into the neck. Being bottled in the 1940s this would have contained a significant proporiton of Malt Mill, possibly higher than 50%. These bottles are incredibly hard to find and this is its first appearance in an online auction. 

I have had the good fortune to sample an identical bottle of this and it is both remarkable in its potency and utterly spectacular in its flavour. 

Although a condition report is normally included in the lot description, we would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids.

If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the link "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen and described.

Please note: due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
