Dalmore 1939 Gallie & Co
Perhaps one of the most interesting lots in this months auction.
This exceptionally rare bottle Dalmore was distilled in 1939 and most likely bottled by the established Wine and Spirits Merchants Gallie & Co, Market St, St Helen's. during the late 1940s or early 1950s. Gallie & Co interestingly began trading within prison cells within St Helen's townhall during 1860 and operated within the cells until 1937, when the premises moved to Market Street. Gallie & Co's fortunes were not to last and they ceased trading during August of 1975.
This is an incredibly rare bottle of Dalmore, not only is the vintage from 1939 but the bottler has long since closed it's doors.
There are a number of reciepts within St Helen's museum which we have copies of showing purchases of casks from Dalmore during the 1920s
The fill level is at the base of the neck and the bottle, seal are in excellent condition with some minor marks on the labels.
