Description

John Power & Son Limited , John's Lane Distillery.

Dublin Whiskey No. 301057

Bottled by J & J O' Byrne Ltd, 1 Parnell St. Limerick

 

This white Labeling of John Power & Son Limited is one of the oldest and Rarest Bottles that we have ever come across. The white Label signifies that it was bottled by an independent bottler, Whiskey Merchant J&J O'Byrne Ltd of 1 Parnell Street Limerick. Very Few white Label Powers have popped up over the years as Powers began bottling their own liquid under the Powers Gold Label in the late 1800's , while everyone else continued selling white label whiskey until the 1950's-1960's. We have dated this bottle to the early 1900's which is extremely impressive given its condition.

Another Bottle of Powers White label from another Bonder previously sold for £4,400 at a UK auction.
