Philadelphia 8 Year Old Blended Whiskey 40 Fl. Ozs. 1964-1977

Produced by Continental Distilling at their long-lost Kinsey distillery in Linfield, Pennsylvania. This is a blended whiksey containing 35% straight whiskies and 65% grain neutral spirits.

Continental Distillers were a subsidiary of Publicker, who would go on to invest heavily in the Scotch market, founding Inver House distillers.

Although the Kinsey distillery nowadays sits in ruin, the name lives on as a bourbon brand produced nearby at New Liberty Distillery in Philadelphia, PA.

This bottle dates from sometime between the removal of the federally mandated warning about refilling the bottle in 1964 and the the rewording of the the tax strip form Internal revenue to Bureau of ATF in 1977.
