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 decanter containing Old Smuggler Blended Scotch Whisky, which we estimate dates from the 1970s. The brand was established in 1835 and named after the smugglers who worked the Scottish Islands in that era.
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.
Dewar's created this expression of White Label as a recreation of the flagons used during the brand's early days in the late 19th century. This was released in 1986 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the blend receiving its first award.
An old bottling of Dimple Royal Sovereign. This has been aged for 21 years and is presented Dimple's iconic triangular bottle, encased in a pewter 'frame'. We estimate that this was bottled sometime in the 1980s.
A delightfully presented 1980s crystal decanter containing Glenturret 21 year old and comes with accompanying stopper. Glenturret is the spiritual home of the Famous Grouse blend, for which most of its production is used.
