Help with a bottle

Postby scottie_dog » 28 Nov 2012, 14:06

Hello to all users of the forum

I was wondering if anyone might be able to help with a bottle of blended whisky I have.
You can see the same bottle on this photo available here http://www.flickr.com/photos/stickywilly/6868441150/lightbox/
From what I can find out it seems that the company is no longer trading, therefore I was wondering if anyone knew anything of this particular bottle Independance - 'Rise now and be a nation again' i.e. how many bottles were produced, what year it might have been released etc

With many thanks in advance

Hi there,

are politics allowed in this forum? 8-)

http://www.scotchwhisky.net/independent ... e_orig.htm

"Independence De luxe Scotch Whisky has achieved its envied position because of the careful concern and expertise of the blenders at Gordon Morrison Whiskies of Edinburgh. Using only the highest quality whiskies from the Isle of Skye, a perfect blend has been created which meets the approval of connoisseurs the world over. Be part of the experience. As they say in the Western Isles, slainte, cheers!"

A blend of whiskies from the Isle of Skye???

But you are right, the homepage is no longer in existence it seems.

Hi kallaskander

Very interesting find about the Trademark application - http://www.ipo.gov.uk/tm/legal/decision%20...%20o14498.pdf

I had already found the one that mentioned the blend of Skye whiskies - strange...

Thanks
