Gilbey's Redbreast 12 Year Old Bottled 1960s - John Jameson & Son's 5cl
A bottle of Gilbey's 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 would estimate that this was bottled during the 1960s.
This lot is from a large collection of miniatures and memorabilia built up during the 1980s and 1990s by whisky expert Sukhinder Singh. He is now selling part of his collection to make room for more acquisitions.
