I received a question (below) from a visitor. Does anybody know this bottling?
I have what increasingly seems to be the only 1945 25th anniversary unopened bottle of schenley canadian whisky known to exist. We told a collector friend that we wanted to sell the bottle and now have at least 6 collectors interested and all saying the same thing...the bottle is so rare they did not know any still existed (they have never seen one)...it was apparently only manufactured a couple of months in 1945 by Vallyfield. I am trying to find out what this bottle is worth and someone told me once that the company that made the bottle did not even have a bottle of it. Do you know if Vallyfield kept one of these bottles? Or do you know what it is worth? A description and pictures are below.
An unbroken seal running from lid to bottle has G9355574 1945 on it. A gold seal at top of bottle says Schenley Elegance. Main label says Special bottling in commemoration of Schenley's 25th anniversary 1957. Imported Canadian O.F.C. by Schenley Canadian Whisky A BLEND. Bottle is 4/5 quart. Top of bottle has 132 months old label below neck. Bottle has been kept in velour bag all these years. Labels look new. Pictures attached. Any help would be appreciated.
