Old Comber Whiskey - a determination to shun all brands in the future except "Auld Cummer"

This article from the Belfast News Letter in 1893 corroborates an old advert I saw many years ago, but which sadly I didn't acquire at the time. The County Down town of Comber, very much an Ulster-Scots town, was renowned for producing "Old Comber" Whiskey. Production began in 1825 and it was colloquially known as "Auld Cummer". This article describes a swish social occasion at the long-demolished Mount Alexander, a grand home built by the Montgomeries in the 1620s.
