Whisky Bell's Christmas Decanter Alexander Bell
A charming Bell's ceramic decanter, released to celebrate Christmas. Part of one now defunct annual series, this decanter contains Bell's Extra Special blended Scotch whisky.
Bell scotch whisky is a blend of five malt and grain whiskies, sourced from five different distilleries. They include – Blair Athol, Highland – Inchgower, Speyside – Dufftown, Speyside – Glenkinchie, Lowland and Caol ila, Islay. The first bells decanter appeared in the 1920's and was made of blue glass, rather than the traditional shape, which came into play in 1988. The 2001 decanter celebrates the life of ‘Alexander Graham Bell ‘1847-1922, born in Edinburgh. Bell in 1874 developed the basic ideas for the telephone and in 1876, the first sentence was transmitted. The 2001 decanter was the first of four under the heading ‘Great Scottish Inventors'.
The year 2000 saw the opening of the Bell's Cherrybank Heritage Centre in Perth, the hometown of the UK's Nº. 1 blended Scotch whisky.
Gateway to Highlands, Perth has long been at the heart of all things Sottish. Visitors to the Cherrybank Centre have been the chance to drink in some of the secrets of blending, perfected with loving care over 175 years by Arthur Bell and his descendants.
