Hugely popular in times gone by, the days of the ceramic whisky decanter would seem to have passed. Nonetheless, certain of these decanters have remained extremely valuable due to their rarity and/or the quality of the whisky within.
An old ceramic bottle of blended Scotch whisky, bottled for The Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood, which was serving between 1929 and 1987, when it was destroyed by fire. We estimate this dates from the 1940s.
A special embossed teardrop decanter of aged Strathmill, bottled for the distillery's centenary in the early 1990s. Very rare to see an official bottling of Strathmill, this is a real collector's item.
A stunning new distillery bottling of Glenfarclas 50yo for The Whisky Exchange. Aged over 50 years in a single refill sherry cask, and bottled at a remarkable 50% abv, just 87 bottles were yielded from the cask. This incredibly rare Glenfarclas has been packaged in a gorgeous crystal decanter.
Bottled in 1978 into just sixty beautiful cut crystal decanters, the casks for Dalmore 50yo were laid down in the 1920s, and some of the spirit is reputed to have been distilled in the late 19th century. This is one of the best 50 year-old whiskies ever produced and is the personal favourite of many connoisseurs worldwide.
