Redbreast 12 Year Old Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
Redbreast 12 YO
Redbreast 12 YO is full of aroma and flavour and benefits from a strong contribution from distillates which have matured in Oloroso sherry casks, giving it its trademark Christmas cake character.
One of the most decorated Irish whiskeys, Redbreast 12 YO is the largest selling Single Pot Still Irish whiskey in the world and is regarded as the definitive expression of traditional Pot Still whiskey.
Redbreast is one of the few single pot still whiskey brands produced today and is the only one with an age statement. It is produced at the New Midleton Distillery, Midelton, County Cork by Irish Distillers.
There are currently four expressions available; Redbreast 12 year, Redbreast 12 Cask Strength, Redbreast 15 and the newest addition, Redbreast 21.
In 2010, the Redbreast 12-year variation was proclaimed Irish Whiskey of the Year by whiskey writer, Jim Murray, and was also nominated as #1 buy in John Hansell's Buyer's Guide, which gave it a rating score of 96 points.
"Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. For lovers of the style, Redbreast approaches perfection".
Redbreast is the secret restaurant tucked away in the back of the strip mall that only a handful of people know about.
"The atmosphere is great and the food divine, but no one is sure that they should tell other people about it because either it'll become too crowded (and thus will be impossible to get a table) or the increased production by the staff in the back will affect the overall quality of the place".
