Nazeing Old Parr Whisky bottle for United Distillers
« on: August 06, 2012, 12:08:06 AM »
I was searching for something else and came across this.
Apparently this was the most expensive whisky produced selling for £580 per bottle and the bottles were made by Nazeing Glass

I wonder when they were made M? The metal bashers started in 1975, so that gives us a start date... perhaps Stephen P-H will drop by and tell us more.

I'm trying to work out who made the whisky..... or is it the bottle alone that makes the price so silly?

Only a blended! give me a single malt like Glenfarclas or Yamazaki any day and the glass is not so interesting either ;D ;D

United Distillers as was
but there is some info I just came across on why they keep the original distillery name (takeovers etc)  I don't know anything about it and they used to be my client for Bell's Whisky....oh the good old days when Famous Grouse was my bete noire.

I like the glass - I like it as much as I love the Bombay Sapphire bottles.  Have you seen other special bottles with decoration in or on the glass Keith?  I'm curious.

A locel charity shop here had an empty bottle of Haig Dimple with a snakeskin cover. Sadly, as I was telling the manageress I thought it might be worth a tad more than the £3 on it, a dealer grabbed it.
I really don't know much about whisky bottles though.
Vasart melted some and collapsed them into ashtrays. Teacher's is the brand-name on mine.
Then there's Timo Sarpaneva's classic, the Finlandia gin bottle, and all the weird ones containing even weirder drinks, with internal parts you find in airport shops....
