Irish Whiskey


You might ask, what a bottle of Irish Whisky and my sister with her young son sitting on a window ledge have in common. The photo is of my sister Anna and her son John and was taken in Thames Street Belfast circa 1954. Well, there is a very interesting connection, these two photos were taken some sixty eight years apart.. My nephew John dropped in for a visit recently and brought me an early Christmas gift. He had just returned from a visit back home to Belfast. Whilst there he went to the Bushmills whiskey distillery, which as a point of interest is the oldest maker of whiskey in the world, over 500 years. He purchased the bottle seen in the photo, it is indeed very special, this particular blend is not available in retail, can only be had at Bushmills. However there is something else about it that makes it very special, look closely and you might see what that is

God Bless and Slainte
