Product Description

Gelston’s Old Irish whiskey was originally founded in 1830 by Samuel Gelston, a very successful wine and whiskey merchant from Belfast. In 1869, upon Samuel’s death, the business was bought by Harry J Neill. Harry, himself passionate about whiskey and now five generations on, it still remains with HJ Neill Limited who now celebrate the revival of this much revered brand.

A 15 year old single malt specially selected by Frank McHardy, a legendary figure in distilling and whose craft and expertise produced some of the finest Irish Whiskey expressions and was Head distiller at Bushmills and also responsible for laying down the 25 year-old release of Gelston's.

Frank returned to Scotland in 1996 to the Springbank Distillery until his retirement in 2013 – having clocked up an impressive 50 years’ service to the industry. He was enrolled into Whisky Magazine’s ‘Hall of Fame’ in 2014 – an award bestowed to those who have made an lasting contribution to the whisky industry.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Very fresh and summery, like a fruit salad with single cream or clotted cream & apricot jam on scones. Some banana fudge and subtle vanillin wood spice.

Palate: Soft and creamy, cream soda, banana foam sweets, ripe galia melon with ginger, very fresh and clean body with elegant spice and balancing oak.

Finish: Creamy vanilla fudge, soft spice, runny honey and white chocolate and more summery fruit cocktail.

An elegant triple distilled 100% Ex-American Bourbon cask aged Irish Single malt limited to only 1800 bottles.
