This email below is the last communication I just received from the distillery.
I am going to step aside and let you communicate with their representative directly. I feel you will get your correct answer more quickly.
As you can see, the representative is named Alan Tenniswood. His email address is
***@******.*** (I am going to send this email address in the following attachment image in case the site blocks the email address.)
I believe those numbers on the bottom of the bottle indicate when the bottle design was approved 9-3-81, which makes sense because that is when we changed the size of the bottle from quarts to metric sizes.
Any chance you can send me some photos? That might help me put a date on it."
