I am in possession of a bottle of Red Hackle Whisky witch is in my family since December 1955. A couple of weeks ago when I opened my cupboard and saw the bottle of Red Hackle again I tried to browse the web for more information on it and the only article I could find was by The University of Glasgow which only consist of a short history of the founder of the company and the origin of the Red Hackle name.
"In 1920 Charles Hepburn established 'Hepburn and Ross'. Owned jointly with Herbert Ross, a fellow soldier who had fought with the Scottish Horse Regiment in Palestine, Hepburn and Ross had a policy of employing ex-servicemen and produced 'Red Hackle' whisky which was aimed primarily at the export market."
"Hepburn's partner Herbert Ross died in 1957. Two years later, shortly after the death of his wife, Hepburn sold the business for a reputed £2m, commenting, 'When my wife died ... I realized that you never do anything for yourself, only for someone else. You come home in the evening and she asks - "Well, what have you done today?" When that's gone, a lot of the meaning has gone out of the game.'"(http://www.gla.ac.uk/departments/scotti ... klewhisky/
This interested me and since then I wondered if this might be the only bottle of Red Hackle witch are unopened and still in its box.
Thus I would appreciate any information.
