Henry James Neill was a daring young Irishman with a love of adventure. In 1851 he set sail for Australia to make his fortune in the gold rush supplying provisions and whiskey to the miners and their families. In 1869 he bought his favourite Irish whiskey, renowned for its smoothness and depth of flavour from Samuel Gelston. Since then his zeal for quality and love of flavour has passed down through four generations of the Neill family.
