One Galway race-goer has a hefty bar bill after big win celebrations go overboard

ONE Galway pub has had arguably the single biggest sale of the Galway Races festival.

The Front Door pub posted the receipt yesterday morning showing the single transaction of two glasses of the rare Midleton Pearl whiskey - totalling €1,990.

The hefty tab was paid for at 1.42 am by a flush person, perhaps after backing a winner at the annual Galway races.

The malt is one of Ireland's rarest whiskeys, with only 117 bottles produced in the world. The Midleton Very Rare Pearl Edition is made with grain whiskey from 1981 and single pot still whiskey from 1984.

While we're sure the rare whiskey was very much enjoyed, hopefully the bill won't come as a shock to the lucky punter this morning...
