Description

This is undoubtedly the oldest known bottle of Redbreast around today.

It was a premium Irish whiskey back when premium whiskey was known about.

This bottle is most likely pre-world war two, the glass looks moulded as opposed to blown.

There doesn’t appear to be any pontil scar. this would place the bottle after the early 1920s at least.

The greenish glass appears to be from around the time period and it's sealed with a driven cork, other Gilbeys products would have been sealed with wooden corks in the 1940s, again another indication of its age.

Likely to be bottled at 43% possibly chill haze at lower ABV.

This is an Irish whiskey historical unicorn Pre-war premium whiskey is rare.

You will not see a bottle of this kind anytime soon, they simply do not exist.

Redbreast

As Redbreast whiskey has had many different incarnations over the years it deserves a category of its own. The original Redbreast whiskey began as a bonded finished whiskey by the Gilbey wine and spirits company. They continued to produce these excellent examples of pure pot still whiskey up until they sold the brand to IDL in 1986. Since then IDL have continued the tradition of Redbreast whiskeys and won accolades for their 12, 15 and 21 year old bottlings. Today it is a highly collectable whiskey with various bottles of their 12 year old the mainstay of most collections. In recent years they have released some Limited edition specials that are now commanding a great following and prices. Their latest, the 32 year old “Dream Cask” was one of the highlights of 2018 with it selling out almost immediately upon release.
