Wow!
Its a HW-Highland Ooler- 1957- one of the rarest TP-Vattings ever and apparently really good and worth any amount.
You might have heard the true story, that the one and only present of of Prince Rainer of Monaco for his 18th birthday was one of these fillings!
Too expensive for private investors though.
If you dont find a sheik that will pick it up in person at your place contact me at our National Collecter Center as shown below.
As a historical chance we would of course like to buy that bottle, wont be able to spend more than 15 000,- Euro though.
Please contact uns in any way. We would like to take photos and register the bottle, you will be rewarded of course.

I have a vintage bottle of White Horse Cellar blended Scotch Whiskey. I've been unable to find a similar bottle in my research. I've attached some pictures and would very much appreciate your help in identifying the age and the value. It's in mint condition, sealed and never opened.

If it turns out to be valuable, I'd like to sell it. Do you know of any collectors in the South Florida area who might be intersted.

Thank you so much.

Hi there,

I am after an empty bottle of White Horse Whisky for a theatre show in Islington, London (UK).

Our play is set in 1949 but there is a little flexibility with this date.

Would you be able to help me at all? We don't need a botle with any real value - just something with that brown glass, with the white horse and preferably a spring cap. The labels don't have to be in a brilliant condition as we can print and stick on new ones.

Thanks,
Anastasia

Gerhard,

It may be hard to date your bottle without additional information found on the labels...

Brown glass White Horse bottles have been around since at least 1931, and were produced until at least 1957...Most of the earlier bottles were dark green in color, and later ones were clear.

Cheers,
Walter C Hurst

Wchurst, you seem to know the subject very well, different from me. I just got a bottle by heritage, but it is green. But the label already says "By appointment of <b> Her Majesty, the Queen</b>", so it must be from after her coronation. Unfortunately the labels are no longer in perfect condition, as you can see from the pictures - the backlabel is almost totally rotten. But the content level is still high. How much would it be worth?

Klaus,

Based on the label information, your bottle dates to about 1958-59.

I admit the labels are a bit rough, as is the capsule, but the contents are in perfect condition: At auction this should sell for about 80-100 €.

Cheers,
Walter C Hurst

Thank you very much, Walter. This gives me an idea of the price in Europe. As I am in Brazil, I believe that I can increase it somewhat. But I won't put it in an auction but rather offer it directly in second hand products sites. Again, thank you.
Klaus

I also have one the horse is on the back. It has a label on the front with a
number No AU 2018338 it
has never been opened it
was distilled in Glasgow
Scotland for USA for Browne Vinters Co. NY. On the bottom it has the
number 0616 Glasgow
Scotland and 4 under that
It is 4/5 blended in White
Horse Cellars. Delivered by stage coach every Mon.and Friday that went
Through Edinburg the trip
took 8 days God permitting. Each person
could only take a weight of 14 pound each pound
cost 6 pence. February 1754 this story is on the
label on the front of the
bottle but I have never
been able to find its value
either. Would appreciate
any thing you find out.

Ginny,

Sorry to have missed this request, as it wasn't posted in the right area for whiskies, but I can answer your bottle questions for you....

Could you include a clear photo or two of your bottle in a standing position ?!?

Cheers,

Paulo,

Your White Horse dates to Christmas 1955!

Current auction values very widely by country & auction house, but this one would auction for about $200-$225 in the USA, and about $275-$325 in the EU/UK.

Cheers,
Walter C Hurst

Pablo,

Your bottle is also from 1955, and probably produced around late Oct/early Nov.

The content level looks great, but the labels do have some considerable damage...still at auction, this should sell in the US for about $150-185.

Love the state tax stamps on this one!

Cheers,
Walter C Hurst

Ida,

The Series Number (EO) for this bottle dates to about 1979-1980.

Unfortunately, the larger display sized bottles don't often appear at auction enough to give a very accurate valuation based on known sales....However, similarly dated bottles in the 750ml-4/5 Quart size range currently sell most often in the GBP 40-50 (HKD 400-500) range.

Using this as a base-line, I'd estimate that this would be worth between HKD 1,000-1,200 for a 1/2 Gallon size, and HKD 2,000-2,500 for a 1 Gallon size.

Cheers,
Walter C Hurst
