Findlater's First XI 11 Year Old Scotch Football Decanter from 1980s (75cl, 43%)
Findlater's First XI, an excellent blended whisky produced by Findlater Mackie Todd & Co. It was aged 11 years and bottled in a Mitre football shaped decanter in 1980s.
The Findlater brand of blended Scotch whisky was established early on in the company’s history by founder Alexander Findlater, whose uncle was a Scottish excise officer who held a superior office to the poet Robert Burns.
Findlater first purchased malt whisky from Shaw & Turbett and William Burns in 1826, though the supply was switched to the Glasgow Distillery Company in 1831, which supplied the burgeoning store with both grain and malt whiskies.
Findlater Scotch whisky continued to be bottled until the early 1980s. A range of expressions was released, from blends to 25-year-old single malt. The more collectible blends were often sold in Wedgwood decanters.
