"In 1979 and 1980 the distillery's switched to metric bottles and in those two years the bottles will give fluid ounces and metric measurement. If it says 4/5 quart, then the bottle is older than 1979. If it has both styles it is 1979 or 1980. If it is in liters, then it is 1981 or newer. In the late 1980's the computer bar code starts to appear on labels. About 1989 or 1990 then the government required warning labels such as drinking is bad for the unborn children, so drink if you are pregnant."
If UK whisky bottles are similar, it would be in the late 1980's.
