A lucky winner at the Galway races celebrated their good fortune with two glasses of a special rare whiskey.
The Irish Independent reports that after a successful day spent at the Ballybrit Racecourse, the winner stopped at the Front Door Pub in Galway city and ordered two glasses of Midleton Pearl Very Rare 30th Anniversary.
As the name indicates, the brand is one of Ireland’s rarest whiskeys, with only 117 bottles produced in the world. A single measure of the drink costs €995 (about $1,100).
The generous unnamed patron even left a €10 tip, bringing the check total up to an even €2,000.
According to a pub spokesperson, the whiskey was produced to commemorate 30 years since the first bottling of the Very Rare singe back in 1984.
The pub’s bottle of this exceptional drink was signed last year by master distillers Barry Crockett and Brian Nation, who collaborated on the blend.
