Does anyone know when barcodes were first used on UK whisky bottle labels?? I know it is a bit of strange question, but an elderly neighbour has given me an old looking bottle of Bells that her husband bought, he died in the 1970's. I am just wondering how old it is. The bottle does not have a barcode, just a serial number on the label and the "70' Proof" alcohol label. There is no age statement on the bottle just "Extra Special", and a "Choose wisely" label on the back.
Thanks for your help![/b]
