Just thought I would give everyone a break from my glass collection. I have collected a few (4) Tullamore Dew whiskey crocks/jugs because a) they were Irish and b) they were green and went nicely on a kitchen windowsill.
First a little history lesson, Tullamore Dew is a brand of blended Irish whiskey. Although it was originally a pot still whiskey, first distilled in 1829 in Tullamore, County Offaly, the modern product is a blended whiskey that is not produced in Tullamore town. The name derives from the initials of an early manager of the concern, Mr. Daniel E. Williams (abbreviated "D. E. W." and merged to form "Dew").
The company produces these whiskey crocks alongside their normal bottles, early examples were made by Spode and Wade, later examples by the Irish Porcelain Company. This one is from the 1970's and although unmarked was probably made by Spode. They are of no real monetary value although collectors will pay 30-40 euros for a pristine example.
