Winning bid: £50.00
Lot number: 065-1453

The purpose of a hydrometer is to determine the specific gravity of a liquid. From this it is often possible to determine the composition or strength of the liquid. The Sikes hydrometer was, for very many years, the standard means of determining the alcohol content of spirits and hence the duty payable.

Please note there is no whisky included with this lot.

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
