John Jameson & Son Bottled 1891-1906 - Thomas Preston 75cl / 40%
A very old bottle of Jameson Irish whiskey.
The bottle is what is known as Bonders or Publicans Bottling; ie whiskey sold by the barrel to Spirit Bonders and Publicans who then bottle the whiskey on their own premises using labels supplied by the distillery.
The distillery supplied the labels and capsules and the Publican inserted his own name on the label. This rare example was bottled by Thomas Preston of the County hotel pub, 2 Islington, Liverpool for sale on his premises.
The number is likely to be Thomas Preston’s own Bond number rather than a distillery batch number for the whiskey.
We estimate this was bottled between 1891 and 1906.
This is bottle number 1025.
Please see images. Note wear to the labels and capsule.
