About Gelstons Irish Whiskey
Gelstons Old Irish whiskey was 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, had left Belfast a few years earlier to make his fortune in the Australian Gold rush in 1851 and went on to expand the business significantly. Five generations on, it still remains with HJ Neill limited who now celebrate the revival of this much revered brand. Some of the earliest advertising for the brand still exists today, including this one which depicts the 'Gap of Dunloe', a famous Irish beauty spot.
