Old Orkney Real Liqueur Whisky

The 50ml bottle was picked up for £4,000 (US$5,317) when it was sold by Whisky.Auction. It formed part of a collection of 84 miniatures from one seller who paid £100 for the entire lot during an auction in Brighton on 1979.

Bottled in the 1920s or 1930s, the Old Orkney Real Liqueur Whisky was produced at the silent Stromness Distillery in the south-western part of Orkney in Scotland.
