Redbreast is the largest selling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey in the world. Full of aroma and flavour, Redbreast 12 YO benefits from a strong contribution from distillates which have matured in Oloroso sherry casks, giving it a trademark Christmas cake character.
|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.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - This venerable Irish whiskey has a sublime nose of baked hay, dried golden apple, and cracked barley. The palate is an exquisite experience with rich toffee flavors and lingering notes of vanilla and cinnamon candy. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Tried and True Award) (Apr 2018)
