Last week a friend of mine sent me a picture of a whisky bottle Maclachlan's Five Castle. He don't use to drink too much and it was barelly forgot inside the kitchen cabinet.
It happends chatting we thought we're talking about Macallan.. but no! it's Maclachlan so started to do few searches over google and beside a link to kind of history of a destillery i haven't been able to find info about the quality or information about the whisky.
Hope you can help!
And some info we've found
George and John Maclachlan, brothers from Strathallan, Scotland, entered separately into the Glasgow wine and spirit trade in 1871 and 1876 respectively. George Maclachlan acquired A & J McCulloch, Argyle Street, Glasgow, Scotland, wine and spirit merchants and whisky blenders, in 1886. The 2 brothers entered into partnership in 1889 and built the Castle Brewery at Wyndford Street, Maryhill, Glasgow. The firm acquired James Lipsey & Co, Belfast, Northern Ireland, Irish whiskey distillers, in 1896.The Castle Brewery had a capacity of over 30,000 barrels per annum but this was not large enough to keep up with demand and so a new Castle Brewery was built in Craigmillar, Edinburgh, Scotland. The brewery opened in 1901 and had a capacity of over 104,000 barrels per annum. John Maclachlan died in 1903 and his interest was acquired by his brother, who purchased Auchentoshan Lowland Malt Whisky Distillery, near Duntocher, Scotland, in the same year.
Let me explain, my family name is that of Maclachlan which of course is on the said bottle, and as the last post highlighted the story of George & John Maclachlan, which I believe are traceable relatives.
This being the case I am enquiring to see if this bottle is still around if so I would be interested in purchasing even if empty, purely as a family memento.
