I have a bottle of White Heather Scotch Whiskey
in mint condition bottled March 19th 1931,
the cork is still intact.
I am looking here to see if I can find out what this item costs.
Thank you for your help.

Hi. Just thought I add a little information that I came up with while researching the history of you famous collectible.
Your whiskey bottle is of great value for many reasons, namely historical valule.
Keep in mind the fact that you have an item that was produced at a time when prohibition would be affecting this product. Whiskey was in the news big time. certain laws would soon after make it possible for wider distribution.secondly, this item came during depression period nwhich was by then in full swing, a famous president was in office at the time. There was little to celebrate, yet your item would have be paramount in any event requiring its use.
consider the following information from my internet yahoo.com search: Opening Of The US Market


The U.S. was opened to imported spirits with the ending of Prohibition in 1933. Domestic producers were unable, at least initially, to provide an adequate supply of quality whisky and the Scots took full advantage of the opportunity. This new export market was further developed following the end of World War II when American Gl's returned with a taste for Scotch Whisky.

note: Presently, I'm searching through my collection of Detroit News Papers that cover a period of time from 1929-1938. I hope to locate a bit of advertising that display the actual bottle and the store that offered it.
