White Horse Cellar Flat Bottle Blended Scotch Whisky 1940s

$3,750 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 in the early years of that decade or could even be the 1930’s. It has a good fill to the bottom of the neck and for its age is in remarkably good condition, except for some slight wrinkling to the back label. The white horse figure is boldly embossed on the back of the bottle.

This is 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 neat 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!

The bottle no is AZ 832029.

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.
