Value of old Teachers scotch

Postby Ryan P » Wed Sep 13, 2006 5:47 am

I have an old (1850-1890) bottle of William Teachers and Sons Scotch Whiskey from Glasgow. Does anyone have any idea how I would go about getting some more information on this, or getting it valued? Or do you know of any other similar bottles of scotch which have been sold recently?

Thanks for any help,

Ryan.

If your dating is right it could be worth something alright. The guys to contact would be http://www.mctears.co.uk/histfr.htm

One of the main auction houses that deal in Whisky.

If you get a chance could you post a picture it would be very interesting.

Hi Ryan,
it would be nice if you could post a picture, but apart from that, I agree that for such a bottle, McTears is the correct place to look. But be prepared to pay a valuation fee equal to a percentage of the bottle value.
