    Distiller Notes

    2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Double Gold Medal Winner

    Redbreast 12-Year-Old is created in Midleton, East Cork, Ireland, at the Old Midleton Distillery. Only the best barley is used to create this whiskey, and the triple distillation process results in one of the smoothest spirits you have ever tasted. Because of its sweet and subtle flavor, drinking Redbreast neat is the best option. You can also use this whiskey to create a variety of citrus-based cocktails, including the Robin Song or the Red Hush. For those in the know, there is no better single pot still Irish whiskey than Redbreast. With a history that stretches back to the 1800s, Redbreast has been the whiskey of choice for spirit enthusiasts who enjoy rich flavors and enticing aromas. Originally distilled by Gilbey's, Redbreast is now under the Jameson umbrella, and is one of this distiller's most popular spirits. After undergoing a triple distillation process, Redbreast is aged in an oak cask so that its flavors can mature, and because no extra water is added during bottling, you will always enjoy a full-bodied whiskey.

    Very elegant, complex, and stylish. Honeyed and silky in texture, with toffee, toasted marshmallow, nougat, maple syrup, banana bread, and a hint of toasted coconut. Bright fruit and golden raisin blend in nicely with the layers of sweetness. Impeccable balance and very approachable. Classic Irish whiskey!

    Redbreast dates back to 1903 when Jameson entered into an agreement with the Gilbeys Wines & Spirits Import Company to supply them with new make spirit from their Bow St. Distillery. The custom of that era was that distilleries sold bulk whiskey to ‘bonders’ who, being in the business of importing fortified wines such as sherry and port, had ample supplies of empty casks in which to mature new make whiskeys under bond.

    The making of Redbreast, a single pot still whiskey, has been safeguarded and nurtured under the watchful eye of the Midleton Distillery for almost two hundred years. And Redbreast is proudly considered the definitive expression of this single pot still art.

    In December 1991, Redbreast was re-introduced by Irish Distillers Limited, after an absence of almost 10 years. The veritable pot still whiskey was given a thorough makeover and benefitted from Irish Distiller's revamped wood programme. The flawless pot still distillate from Midleton Distillery was now maturing in only the finest sherry and bourbon casks. Whiskey writer Michael Jackson said "IDG relaunched Redbreast as a 12 year old. This is traditional Irish pot-still at its richest: well matured and with a generous slug of sherry. For some lovers of this style, Redbreast approaches perfection."

    The result of an historically prohibitive tax placed on malted barley by the English crown, Irish Whiskey is most often produced from a combination of un-malted barley and other grains. Whereas most other Whiskeys are twice distilled, Irish Whiskeys are distilled three times in a column still and must mature in oak barrels for a minimum of three years. These intricate production steps combine to make them lighter, smoother and more approachable than other styles.
