/ 1935 Tylors Port / Sheperd Neame Capsule / Berry Brother label

Hi, have found in the cellar a bottle of old Port wine with a Berry Brother label "1935 Taylor" and a white capsule from Shepherd Neame Ltd, Faversham.
Has Shepherd Name bought cases of Port in that time and bottled themselves for the pubs ? Can anybody help me find out some details about the history of that bottle ?

I can confirm that Shepherd Neame did import barrels of port and the Faversham Society has a photograph of Mr H J Balls (who was their wine buyer) and feluccas with barrels of port. That must have been pre-war.
