Lincoln Inn Old Rye Whiskey

I thought I would go north of the border with this post and share my Lincoln Inn Old Rye Whiskey bottles. One is a full pint and the other is a 1/10th pint. The pint bottle has never been opened while the mini was consumed years ago. Either way, these are very neat bottles that came from the Distillers Corporation Limited, Montreal, Canada. The pint bottle shows up a lot on ebay because of the incredible embossing on the front and back. People saved them because of this and rarely does it show up with such a nice label and I’ve never seen another one sealed and full.

It is thought that Lincoln Inn was one of the brands from Canada that Al Capone would smuggle in for his speak easies. Seems plausible. I don’t know much about this brand except from what I learned at pre-pro.com, which is interesting. As it turns out, Distillers Corporation LTD eventually turned into Seagrams.

For the analytical people out there, here is exactly what the pint label reads:

  1. I have one of that I dug up working and it is full but the label is torn on 1 side do these bottles have any value

  2. Yes, depending upon fill level it may have some value. Click Contact WhiskeyBent.net, send some photos, and I’ll give you my opinion.
    Cheers!

  3. Hello,
    I just came across the Pint size bottle about a week ago. I’d never seen it before, and I do love Lincoln so I picked it up. It’s definitely been drank dry, but the label and cap are near perfect. I have no interest or intention to sell it, but was curious if it was worth anything. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you kindly.

  4. Found a bottle at work after excavating a site in Toledo ,oh by the the maumee river a Lincoln Inn flask shaped bottle with a man on a horse with a diamond shape on bottom with the letter D in it and to the right a capital Letter Y . Need some education on this one .
