    The jug measures about six and a half inches high and not quite five inches wide. It has two handles, glazed partly honey brown – as is the long (1.5-inch) neck, although the body of the piece is beige. On the top is the phrase, “The Greybeard,” a term for a gray stoneware jug filled with whisky made in illicit stills in Scotland.
    The Mitchell Brothers of Campbeltown bottled the whisky, which was not single malt but a blended whisky. By 1934, one year after prohibition ended, only two Campbeltown distilleries remained open – Springbank and Glen Scotia. The whisky in this greybeard came from Springbank.
    The bottom is stamped "Made in Scotland" in black print, glazed over, along with an indented oval mark – "Possil Pottery 18 – Glasgow. Possil Pottery was out of business in September of 1942.
    Recently, a bottle was for sale on Scotchwhiskyauctions.com. The highest bid of £1250 didn't meet the reserve price.
