1948 Half Bottle Dimple Haigh - info required

Postby wilkesd » Sat Dec 16, 2006 6:29 pm

My mother -in-law has a 1/2 bottle of Dimple Haigh Whiskey in it's original box, Dimple Bottle shaped, dating from around 1948. The box has a number of figures on it including a golfer in plus fours. The bottle has a gold wire mesh around it and the bottle seal is intact, as is the foil around the seal. She is looking for info on it and also to see if it is worth anything and if so where/what/who do we speak to. Can supply digital photos if required

Any help from the knowledgable amongst you would be greatly appreciated

Hmmm, i dont get it.
How is it possible to have a half a bottle of whiskey, while the bottle seal is intact???
Is it 50 cl bottle??

No a half bottle is not a full bottle with half of it's contents removed. :lol:

There is a 37.5cl (375ml) version of this bottle as I picked up one. It may not be made any more but was available at one stage.


I guess not hugely valueable though. I plan drinking mine which I paid only €10 for.

I have several full half-bottles, and a few half-full bottles, but no half-full half bottles.

I forgot to add ... I think my half bottle is from the 60's
