Catto's 11 Year Old Extra Special Liqueur 1940s / US Import

A very interesting bottle of blended whisky from the 1940s. This whisky was produced by James Catto & Co. of Aberdeen before being imported to the United States via Julius Loeser & Co of Chicago, Illinois.

This bottle is being sold from the Pat's Whisk(e)y private collection which, numbering in excess of 9,000 bottles and over 2,000 miniatures, is the single largest collection of whisky ever to be brought to auction. Pat's Whisk(e)y is the result of over fifteen years of passion and dedication to the goal of creating one of the most complete libraries of whisky and whiskey ever amassed by an individual collector. It contains bottles from over 150 different Scottish distilleries, as well as bourbon, rare Scotch releases from sought-after independent bottlers in Europe, and whisky from other distilleries across the globe. Whisky Auctioneer is delighted to have partnered with Pat's Whisk(e)y to offer this collection across a number of exclusive and spotlight auctions. For more information, please click here.

The Bill Pilgati Collection

Pat acquired this blend from the revered Bill Pilgati Collection. The Pilgati family owned the famous Del Rio bar and restaurant in Chicago since the 1920s, and it amassed a significant collection of spirits over the years. Of these, the majority were blended Scotch, mostly acquired in the 1940s and 1950s when the category was incredibly popular, partcicularly in the United States.
