Product Description

An extraordinary unique gift A 5cl bottle of Andrew Usher & Co.’s Blended Scotch Whisky from a full size bottle recovered from a shipwreck that happened at Bloody Point, Kirkcolm in 1898. The ship was sailing to Australia loaded with whisky, beer, iron, crockery and clothes. The ‘Firth of Cromarty’ was bound for Sydney with 2250 tons of whisky, beer, iron, crockery, haberdashery and preserves.On 26th August 1898 the Firth of Cromarty left Glasgow. She was bound for Australia with over 2000 tons of general cargo and a large consignment of whisky. By 27th August she was off Corsewall Point at the top of the Rhinns of Galloway when a strong wind smashed her against the rocks. The crew managed to escape but it took a further four days before a salvage party could reach the ship. In the meantime much of her cargo, including the whisky was washed ashore. Vintagewinegifts has acquired two bottles from this shipwreck and has decanted the Whisky into a 5cl bottle and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by our wine buyer.
