Gelston’s Old Irish Whiskey was first established in 1830 by Samuel Gelston, a renowned wine and spirit 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 of 1851 and went on to expand the business significantly.
Five generations on, it still remains with H.J. Neill Limited who now celebrate the revival of this much revered brand with a range of aged Single Malt Irish Whiskeys.
