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.
