    RARE BOTTLE OF OLD IRISH WHISKEY SELLS FOR 5,200

    Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

    A rare bottle of old Irish whiskey sold for a hammer price of €5,200 at Victor Mee’s online auction of the McCabe Collection in Co. Cavan today. Dating from the 1880’s the bottle of Cassidy and Co. Monasterevin Whiskey is rare. It is in an unopened hand blown bottle with some evaporation at shoulder level. The Cassidy family made whiskey at their Co. Kildare mill from 1784 until 1921. Businessman Paddy McKillen has restored the Ballykelly mill and plans to open a distillery and visitor centre on the site.
