The Glenavon Special Liqueur Whisky is believed to be almost 150 years old.
The two-part moulded olive-green glass bottle, which is unusually small in size, contains about 400 ml of pale gold liquid. The label reads 'Glenavon Special Liqueur Whisky Bottled by the Distillers'.
The Glenavon Special Liqueur Whisky is believed to have been bottled about 150 years ago at the Glenavon Distillery, which was located in Banffshire. However the Glenavon distillery ceased operating in 1858 meaning the whiskey is at least 148 years old – with a maximum possible age of 155 years.
The bottle has been owned by one family in Ireland for three generations. This is the first time in history it has been offered at auction. She said with the passing of time, family members became reluctant to break the green bottle's seal.
The prized bottle of whisky was auctioned off for £14,850.
