Hi All.......

I was given this bottle recently by a very elderly relative! Anyone give me any information about it? (Age, value etc) Not sure whether to treat it as an 'investment' or just to drink it!

Thanks......Kenny

It is an 'OLD' bottle.....NOT just 5yrs old.....can't find any info and all whiskeyexchange have replied with is - "We will purchase it for £75"...
Looking for some history and a "real" valuation!

Whisky doesn't change in the bottle I'm afraid. So what you have is a 30 or 40 year old bottling of a 5yr old whisky. So the whisky is still 5yrs old.

Campbell, Hope and King had a depot and bottling plant in Elgin, and bottled whiskies as well as beers there.

Re price - if WE offer £75, I'd be surprised and I would certainly take it. It might be an old-ish bottle, but it's just 5yo Glen Grant that's inside. Which is not close to being the world's rarest nor most collectable whisky.

ps - re the label - Glen Grant supplied the standard GG label to customers such as CH&K and Gordon & Macphail, with a space where the customers could print their own names and details - which is what CH&K obviously did in this case.
