    My father had a bottle of this and sold it some years ago. The only other bottle we knew of at the time was at a pub in the Wye Valley in Wales called the Tintern arms(?)

    It would appear that my father owns the other bottle in question. It is in pristine condition never having the seen the light of day and has the original wrapper and box. He would be very interested in selling it and is based in Surrey.
