Inspecting a bottle

Greenlees Brothers' general manager William Hume examines a bottle of Claymore Highland Whisky in the firm's Osborne Street warehouse, c 1890. The whisky is part of a consignment bound for South Africa.

The firm had a stock of more than 7,600 casks of whisky in the warehouse, representing nearly 440,000 gallons of whisky. As many as 2,000 cases of bottled whisky were despatched each day to customers in Scotland, England, Europe, the Americas and throughout the British Empire.
