An old bottle of 10 year-old pure pot still whiskey that was bottled by John Rearden’s pub in Cork City- we estimate this to date from the 1950s or 1960s. Reardens still exist but when this whiskey was produced it was a completely different era. Pubs functioned like grocery stores during the day and it was common for them bottle their own whiskey and to also sell it in jars. This is most likely a Bow St Jameson whiskey but without any mention of a distillery on the label we cannot make any assumptions. Bottle, label and capsule appear to be in excellent condition. Please note the fill level is just below the shoulder of the bottle.
