Discover More About Our Products

The best-selling single pot still Irish whiskey in the world, Redbreast is an Irish institution. The chairman of Gibley's, which was the creator of Redbreast, was very interested in birds. So, he named this whiskey after the robin, a drawing of which can be seen on every bottle. This company has a modest range of five high-quality whiskeys of various ages, the youngest of which is the Redbreast 12 Year Old.

Even though it is the youngest member of the Redbreast family, the 12-year-old offering is distinctive and flavourful. A special mashbill of malted and unmalted barley is brought to the distillery from the surrounding area of Munster. Unmalted barley, which is rare to find in use in distilleries around the world, offers a silky creaminess to the final product that is hard to achieve otherwise. Malted barley, on the other hand, adds spice and the true Irish personality. That is why these two types of barley are mixed together and distilled in handmade copper pot stills.

After 12 long years spent maturing in a mix of both sherry and bourbon casks, Redbreast 12 Year Old is ready to take flight. Its distinctive flavour and personality have made this a favourite Irish whiskey for many. If you like sweet-and-sour whiskeys, this is a great, award-winning option to try.

Jameson Redbreast 12 Years Old

4 /5

- Redbreast is a very special whiskey within the Irish Distillers fortified as it's the only 12 year old Pure Pot Still available.
- It was first launched in 1939 as the brand name given to the pot still whiskey supplied by Jameson to whiskey bonders before bottling at the distillery became the norm in 1968. Stocks of whiskey in bonders' stores petered out, and thus Redbreast all but disappeared until its re-launch by the distillery in the 1990s as a single pot still whiskey.
- This pure pot still whiskey is matured for a minimum of 12 years in sherry casks and Bourbon barrels. Like all good pot still whiskeys, it is strongly flavoured and assertive, making it a rare treat for the connoisseur of fine old whiskey.
- Redbreast 12 Year Old was awarded the overall trophy for the second consecutive year in the International Wine & Spirits competition. Also Winner of Double Gold at the 2005 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
- As all premium whiskeys can be consumed neat, but for a better tasting the recommendation from our Master Blender is to add a drop of water to dilute the alcohol and so release the intense flavours of this unique Pot Still Whiskey.
