Whisky bottle from "Poosie Nansie's" Inn, Mauchline

This bottle is reputedly from the inn run by Nanse Tinnock in Mauchline, which was frequented by Robert Burns during the time he lived at Mossgiel.   Burns mentions drinking a health in her house in the poem, "The Author's Earnest Cry and Prayer", yet on reading the poem Nanse Tinnock is said to have commented that he was only there once or twice.  The bottle is heavily made, dark green and empty!  It is typical of late 18th century glassware and has a cork stopper.   It is one of the relics of Burns which has been preserved in Burns House, Dumfries.
