Gilbeys Of Ireland Redbreast 12 Year Old Bottled 1950s-1960s - John Jameson & Son's 7.1cl
23 October 2018
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 would estimate that this was bottled during the late 1950s to 1960s.
There is no size or ABV stated, but this appears to be approximately 7.1cl.
