The History Of Berry Brothers

Berry Brothers are one of the oldest spirits and wine merchants, not just in the UK, but around the world. The company was founded at St James’s Street in 1698 by Widow Bourne; the company notably received its first Royal Warrant in 1903 and has been an official supplier of whisky for the royal family since King George III’s rule and had other famous customers such as Aga Khan, William Pitt the Younger and Lord Byron. The Berry Bros name is still renowned and active in the industry. When it first started, the company was named Berry Bros & Co, but it was later changed to Berry Bros & Rudd in 1943.

The company famously hosted Napoleon III’s clandestine meetings for the duration of his exile in the 1840s. The cellars are now named after him and are available for hire and host events such as tastings and luncheons. These cellars are also famous for supplying smugglers during the prohibition era and shipping wines on the Titanic.

In 1923, the company developed its own whisky blend entitled Cutty Sark and were pioneers behind the concept of vintages, using Glenrothes single malts as a template. Following the success of the Cutty Sark blend, Berry Bros produced other house whiskies like St James’s, All Malt and Berry’s Best. The firm currently possesses two Royal Warrants and is still owned and managed by members of the Rudd and Berry families. Although the company had the exclusive rights to Glenrothes single malt during the 2010s, it sold back the rights to Edrington in 2017; its place of origin.

The Berry Bros & Rudd labels are famous for the black and white illustration of their St James’s Street headquarters, which was depicted on most of their bottles. Different designs include the Cutty Sark label, which is yellow with a small image of the famous ship. Their All Malt version was also slightly different in that they had an image of a coffee mill and a slogan included on the front, which read ‘At the sign of the coffee mill’. Both the All Malt and The Cutty Sark collection an image of the royal crest with a notice of royal appointment.

The Six Factors That Affect The Price Of Berry Brothers Whisky

There are six factors that will affect the price of your bottle of Berry Brothers. These are the age of the whisky, the bottling date, the vintage, whether it is a single cask edition, the level of the whisky and the condition of the label and box.

Berry Brothers Whisky Value

Age of Whisky

This refers to the number of years the whisky has spent maturing in the cask, not how long it has been in the bottle. The age is indicated on the label and can vary from 5 to over 30 years old.

Macallan Whisky Worth

Bottling Date

This relates to when the whisky was bottled. As bottles from a specific year are consumed, the remaining bottles become rarer, so a ‘standard’ malt released in the 1980’s can become sought after.

Berry Brothers Whisky Value

Distillation Year

The distillation year refers to the specific year in which the whisky was distilled (made).  It is one of the most important factors that can impact the price of your bottle of Berry Brothers. 

Berry Brothers Whisky Value

Label & Packaging

The label on a bottle of Berry Brothers is very important and if it is damaged in any way then this will have a negative impact on the value. A bottle without its original box could be worth up to 30% less.

Berry Brothers Whisky Value

Level

The level of the whisky has a large impact on the value. It should be into the neck (the narrow part). As alcohol is more volatile than water it is the alcohol that will evaporate first, which damages the flavour.

Berry Brothers Whisky Value

Single Cask Bottlings

Single cask bottlings are generally more sought after, as by default they are unique. Look out for numbers on your bottle like XXX/250, which would indicate a single cask edition.

Mark Littler LTD 5 star Google reviews

“I found Mark’s details online after looking to sell a collectable bottle of whisky. I was going to use a well know auction site but Mark secured an offer higher than the highest estimation from any auction house, within days, even after the 10% commission was deducted. Communication was perfect; punctual, to the point and polite. Collection and delivery were taken care of by Mark and instruction was clear and easy to follow. Payment was received to my bank within days of posting the bottle. I can’t recommend Mark enough; he runs a tight ship gets top end offers from his clients and delivers quickly.”

Rod Fountain, via Google

“Mark has been very helpful in helping me sell a bottle of whisky which was given to my father many years ago. He was very professional and was always quick to reply to my questions. Not knowing anything about whisky, Mark was there to offer some good advice and I believe he is very knowledgeable about his work. The sale was done very [quickly], and the money was in my bank account the next day. I would highly recommend his services.”
