Glenfiddich Wedgwood

This is the Glenfiddich Wedgwood Jasperware Stag bottle. Originally produced in the late 1980's in the large size, it was sold in a few U.S. markets before becoming a staple of the duty free shops. As the years rolled by, the price of the piece crept upward to around $500. Because it was so attractive and sold to Wedgwood and bottle collectors alike, Glenfiddich decided to add a miniature version in the early 1990's. This was for sale only at the distillery in Dufftown, Banffshire, Scotland. It proved to be quite successful and has sold now for several years. Due to dollar-pound fluctuations, it was priced at between $80 and $100 depending on the finicky monetary exchange. All good things must come to an end though and Glenfiddich has decided to stop marketing both sizes of the Wedgwood Stag bottle. A few of the large size may be found in an out of the way duty free store, but the miniatures will have to come from a collector.
