In the past, distilleries produced advertising material with their distillery, brand and drinks names on mirrors, signs, etc. These were given out to pubs who sold their products. Some of these advertisements still adorn the walls of pubs to this day. They have survived the ups and downs of the whiskey industry and are a nostalgic reminder of the old good times and the often forgotten brands and distilleries of old.
Today’s pick is a lovely old sign from Echlinville Distillery. The Dunville & Co., Royal Irish Distillery was founded in 1868 as a family business in Belfast, but had to cease production in 1938. The old whisky brand ‘Dunville’ from Belfast found its new home in the Echlinville Distillery after an 80-year break.
