This one takes place online on Wednesday the 12th of August at 2pm.

Well-known throughout Ireland and across the globe for the team’s extensive knowledge on local pub memorabilia and collectibles, the Cavan-based company has become the ‘go to’ auction house for those seeking Irish rarities, including extraordinary bottles of local Irish whiskey.

The upcoming sale features several bottles of Irish whiskey as well as an authentic range of quirky pub memorabilia. One particular lot that whiskey collectors should watch out for is an exceptionally rare bottle of George Roe Irish Whiskey.

Likely to sell at between €6,000 and €12,000, this Geroge Roe 16 Year-Old release was produced for export to the US in the 1930s. Most remarkably of all, the label proclaims this to be “pot still malt whiskey”, making it an incredibly rare Irish Single Malt distilled before 1923 at Thomas Street Distillery, a distillery that has been closed for nearly a century.

“Our Irish Pub Memorabilia & Collectibles sale is one of our most favourable collectibles sales yet due to the wide range of unique lots available,” commented Victor Mee of the upcoming sale, “Pieces within the sale will feature globally-known Irish heritage brands including George Roe, Guinness and Jameson; because of this we expect a lot of interest and a lot of bids come sale day.”
