White Horse Cellar Blended Scotch Whisky 1940s

$3,100 AUD

“By Appointment to His Majesty the King”, but which King? We assume King George VI, which would likely place this bottle in the 1940’s. We believe around 1948. 

It has an excellent fill into the neck and for its age is in remarkably good condition, except for a small tear to the back label and some discolouration.

A US import by Browne Vintners of New York. The size is given as 4/5 quart and the strength shown is 86.8 proof. There is also a tattered tax label over the spring cap, which is expertly covered by heavy foil with a neck label in four languages telling you how to open the cap!

Seriously vintage stuff.

This product is located in the United Kingdom.


White Horse

A much-loved blend from the old DCL stable – forgive the pun – which Diageo still promotes in many overseas markets, including Japan.

It sold 1.5 million cases in 2015 but dropped to 1.3 million in 2016. Hopefully, that decline can be arrested.
