We are delighted to have gotten our hands on two previously unopened cases of the original Dunville’s Three Crowns Special Liqueur Whisky. While we aren’t sure of the exact date of the bottling, this iconic whiskey would have been distilled, matured and bottled at the Royal Irish Distilleries in Belfast some time prior to its untimely closure in 1936.
Bottles like this are a rare find, so to secure two cases is very special indeed!
Those with a passion for Irish whiskey will know of Dunville’s and its place among the icons of Irish whiskey heritage. Founded in 1808, Dunville’s was among the world’s finest and best-known whiskeys until the Royal Irish Distilleries fell silent in the midst of family tragedy and the political and economic turmoil of the 1930s.
In 2012, Echlinville became the proud custodians of the Dunville’s Irish Whiskey brand. Having brought Dunville’s Three Crowns and Dunville’s VR whiskeys back to the world, we are delighted to bring the story full circle with this incredibly rare find from Dunville’s rich history.
