Invercauld

October 11, 2014

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it now. I am not a bottle collector, but I tend to keep those that come my way which seem interesting to me. Having said that, I’m not sure why I have this one. I certainly wouldn’t have bought it. I just don’t buy bottles.

This is a simple green bottle which has been machine blown in a mould.OK, it looks brown on an orange background in bright sunlight. I chose that location to get a shadow on the embossed writing.  I can’t date it but maybe somebody can. It carries the simple legend, ‘Invercauld’ scrawled around it.  Invercauld is a place and castle near Braemar in the Cairngorm National Park in Scotland. This could point to this being a whisky bottle. I can’t abide whisky. In truth, I hardly have any alcoholic drinks, but if I have a food principle it could be not to refuse anything as a matter of principle. But I certainly get no pleasure from spirits.

This bottle has a manufacturer’s name embossed on the base.

As soon as I see burton, I think ‘brewing’.

Can anybody out there tell me anything about this bottle?
