Hello

I recently came across a WM Maxwell whisky pot/Decanter whilst in a charity shop a few weeks ago.

I looked at it and thought that it was a fairly decorative piece and something it would be quite fun to research.

The writing on the bottle says that is WM Maxwell 8 Years Old De luxe Scotch Whisky
and the bottom has WM Maxwell (Scotch Whisky LTD) Made in Scotland Stamped on it.

Does anyone have any information regarding the pot and the company it was made by?

Many Thanks for any help you can offer.

Gary

William Maxwell is a Scotch blended whisky named after a subsidiary of Peter J Russell & Co. Peter J Russell & Co was established in 1936 by Leonard Russell who was orignally a whisky broker but recognised that he would be better off if he produced and sold blended whisky himself.

Russells business grew with the help of the takeover of William Maxwell, a Liverpool trading firm founded in 1796. Under William Maxwells name several more familiar bottles continue to be bottled to this day, such as: William Maxwell, King Robert II, Hedges & Butler, Cockburn & Murray. Familiar whisky names with single malt whisky drinkers such as Ian Macleod and Chieftans Choice also belong to the Peter J Russell & Co. portfolio.

Lidl were selling a bottle of William Maxwell 28 year old Highland single malt at christmas time fo 35 if i remember correctly.
