Henry James Neill was a daring young Irishman with a love of adventure. In 1851 he set sail for Australia to make his fortune in the gold rush supplying provisions and whiskey to the miners and their families. In 1869 he bought his favourite Irish whiskey, renowned for its smoothness and depth of flavour from Samuel Gelston. Since then his zeal for quality and love of flavour has passed down through four generations of the Neill family.
Triple distilled from locally sourced Irish malted barley, and matured in the finest quality ex-bourbon casks, for minimum 12 years, this is an elegantly smooth whiskey with wonderful cereal notes best enjoyed with or without ice.
