    I Can't find another crate that has "london" on a Dewar's White Label Crate.
    Also "flasks" and the "GSL" distillery is a newer Distillery than the looks of this crate.
    Help!
    Can not seem to figure out the rarity and age of this crate.

    Unsolved Mystery

      The liquid alone would weigh close to 20 pounds, then considering the weight of the glass, that’s quite a lot of weight for the construction of the box.
      So much information printed on the box is unusual, i think.

      How old a wooden box looks to you actually has nothing to do with its age. All of them age depending on where and how they have been stored. A newer distillery certainly wouldn't be marked/stamped on an older case. That fact is your starting date for figuring out the actual era this was in use. Do some research on the permit number and other info stamped on the case. Those markings generally narrow the era of use down to a few year span. Good luck.

      Thank you for your comments.
      I had done all the research you have recommended before reaching out to the community and wasn't able to find the defining information I was hoping for.
      Wondering if anyone has a similar crate that they can give me a little information.
