A bad rum, bad wine, bad food, bad sex, bad dancing and bad sex.
All this can be a problem in Irish whiskey.
In fact, Irish whiskey is so bad that it was even considered a crime to drink it, and the government in 2010 banned the production and sale of it in Ireland.
So, when a man from County Mayo tried to sell a batch of Irish whiskey on the black market, he got lucky.
Dublin’s Cork-based Irish Whiskey company was looking for a buyer when it discovered the bottle had been left at the house of an Irish couple.
They took it back to the company, who found it had been sold by a fellow businessman in a pub in Dublin’s west end.
Dubliners were horrified.
The company decided to try to trace the buyer, who had also made a mistake by leaving the bottle in a car park.
Dubliner Mark, 37, told The Irish Post that he had been drinking Irish whiskey for 18 years when he was asked to pay €2,000 for a bottle of the product.
Dubline’s Jacky, 30, said the buyer asked him if he wanted a refund for the mistake.
Jacky told The Independent that when he realised what he had done, he was shocked.
He added that he would have paid €2 million if he had known.
Dubrisland’s John, 39, said he had no idea what he was buying.
“I’d never seen a bottle like this in my life,” he said.
“It’s an extraordinary thing.
I don’t know what to say.”
Dublin businessman Brian Farrelly, who was selling the bottle, told Irish news channel RTÉ that he did not know what the bottle was for.
“The bottle is worth $200,000 and we can’t sell it,” he told RTÉ.
Dubreville’s James, a businessman who works in a hotel, told the Independent that he knew the man who had sold the bottle.
He said he would pay $2 million.
“When I saw the bottle I was shocked, I didn’t know how he got it,” James said.
Dubbed the “bottle of misfortune”, the bottle is now worth around $3.6 million.
Dubs and Cork are the most popular areas for Irish whiskey production.
In 2011, Irish distiller Patrick McTiernan told the Irish Times that Dublin had become “the gold standard”.
He said it was “not unusual” to see people “with their nose in the bottle” buying Irish whiskey in Dublin and Cork.
Irish Whiskey is often sold in bars, where customers are usually paying €1.50 for a 10-ounce bottle.
Dubney has one of the cheapest prices for whiskey in Europe.
Dublin has one the highest prices for Irish whiskeys in the world at €6.6million.
