For anyone interested. Empty bottle, but great for Withnail memorabilia...

... followed by yet another anecdote about his sensitive crimes in a punt with a chap called Norman, who had red hair and a book of poetry stained with the butter drips from crumpets.

This is brilliant! Thanks Making Time.

I bought it, couple of days ago - only got on here now to say thanks.

I've had all sorts of eBay and Google alerts looking for one, in the end your forum post trumped them.

Wanted one for a long time. Chuffed! :)

Wow! I'm so excited for you! Glad to have been a help.

Today I plan to photograph and post some NEW ITEMS on the Wall-O-Withnail, so check it out tomorrow and see what's new! I always put the newest things at the top of the post, so you don't have to scroll through all the things you've already seen in order to get to them.

Awesome - I do check it out from time to time, it's immense!

Where did you manage to find your bottle of Magaux from? I find it amazing that there's still some empty bottles from '53 around. An unopened bottle has got to be worth at least £1000?

I might have a chance to meet Bruce Robinson later in the year, hoping to get him to sign the bottle if so!

A full bottle of 1953 Margaux costs over $1,000 USD. I'm just glad to have gotten hold of an empty bottle!

If you actually do meet Bruce, please tell him the crazy girl with the Wall-O-Withnail collection says hi. He is a sometime penpal of mine. Also, take photos and post them here! :lol:

I've updated the W-O-W... the first two items at the top of the page are the new ones.
