The new Redbreast 21 Years was introduced for the first time in London at a Tasting on September 26th, 2013 by the Master Blender of the Irish Distillers Mr. Billy Leighton. It is the oldest standard Whiskey in the portfolio of Irish Distillers and is matured in a combination of American bourbon barrels and Spanish sherry Casks.
The Robin Redbreast is the only bird which sings continuously throughout the dark Irish winters and is one of the very few small birds that choose the winter in Ireland. It is this enduring spirit which inspires its namesake, Redbreast Whiskey.
When the world demanded lighter, more accessible Whiskey styles, Redbreast stood steadfast in its belief of the tradition and significance of single pot still Irish whiskey. For the past century he has been the standard bearer for this quintessentially Irish style of whiskey.
Single Pot Still Whiskey:
It is unique to Ireland in general and to the Midleton Distillery, Co Cork, in particular, and is regarded as the quintessential style of Irish whiskey. Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills. Pot Still whiskeys are characterized by full, complex flavours and a wonderful creamy mouthfeel.
