WADE: 'Queen Anne Rare Scotch Whiskey' Jug (8756)
Little vintage Water Jug made by WADE, England in the 1970's. Queen Anne Profile.
‘He’ll adore you for choosing Queen Anne,’ declared a 1960's advert featuring a woman in a long dress teasing her man with a bottle behind her back. The blend, which was created by Edinburgh merchant Hill, Thomson & Co. some 80 years earlier, and carried a Royal Warrant, grew to become one of the shining stars of The Glenlivet Distillers’ portfolio. With access to famous malt whiskies from the Glenlivet, Grant Grant and Longmorn distilleries, later adverts boasted that Queen Anne offered the taste of ‘three of Scotland’s finest malt whiskies in one bottle.’
Stamped in white underneath its lip is the Royal Crest with: By Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen - Suppliers of Scotch Whisky Hill Thomson & Co. LTD. Edinburgh.
The jug is in excellent condition - measures 115mm wide x 75mm deep x 85mm to top of spout.
Perfect to water a dram of your whiskey, to further bring out its flavour!
