Description: A bottle of Gilbeys of Ireland Redbreast 12 Year Old Irish whiskey. This was distilled by John Jameson & Son's Ireland. At the turn of the 20th century W & A Gilbey Ltd held more than 700,000 gallons of Jameson whiskey in bonded storage at their Harcourt Street warehouse. As importers of sherry they had easy access to casks and would supply these to Jameson to be filled with whiskey. This whiskey would later be sold by Gilbey's under either their Redbreast or Castle Grand JJ brand. We believe that this was bottled during the late 1950s. We have valued it given it's super condition and the huge interest these days in older Redbreast bottlings. For example, a 1930s Redbreast recently sold at auction for around €26,000 before charges. There is no size or ABV stated, but this appears to be approximately 70cl. This bottle will be of great interest for any serious Redbreast collector.
We have taken great care to provide very clear photos of each lot, please study these carefully before you place a bid to ensure that you are satisfied with the lot condition.
