Hi I have a range of 10 bottles with essence still in them.they are also in a rack. Could I please get some information on the age of them?

Dear Sir/Madame, I have the same bottle but double strength vanilla flavouring compound with liquid and cork stopper. I'm interested in finding out the date. I can send photos. Regards Irene
