Pictured: One of the bottles of whisky dating back to almost 120 years which is auctioned off by Peter Francis Auctioneers in Carmarthen Wales.<br />
Re: Two bottles of Welsh whisky dating back almost 120 years could fetch £3,000 each when they are put up for auction.<br />
The Welsh Whisky Distillery Company bottles are being auctioned online from Thursday until 5 December by Peter Francis Auctioneers in Carmarthen.<br />
The whisky was bought by a wine merchant in Fishguard, Pembrokeshire, in the 1960s for £5 each.<br />
Auctioneer Charles Hampshire said: "It's such a rare thing - the only other ones we know of are on display."<br />
The Welsh Whisky Distillery Company was founded in Frongoch, Bala, Gwynedd in 1889 but closed in the early 20th Century.<br />
The distillery became a World War One prison camp - and more famously, an internment camp after the Easter Rising in the Republic of Ireland.<br />
The bottles, dating back to about 1900, will go up in two separate lots, each with supporting paperwork.
