Redbreast - The Spirit of Christmas

Posted

Does any Irish whiskey capture the spirit of Christmas like Redbreast Single Pot Still?

There has never been more interest in Irish whiskey as evidenced by sales which continue to grow year on year. This interest transcends age and gender making it the perfect gift this Christmas, for a loved one...or for yourself! What's more, there are a wide range of prices, making it very accessible whatever your budget.

If one brand of whiskey says Christmas more than any other, it has to be Redbreast from Midleton Distillery. A perennial favourite, this is arguably the finest expression of the Irish Pot still style.

Join us this coming weekend, Friday 8th Dec. 4 - 8pm and Saturday 9th Dec. 2 - 6pm, when we will be tasting two expressions of Redbreast, the 12yr Old Pot Still and the Lustau Edition.

There will also be an opportunity instore to enter a draw to win "The Jameson Experience" tour of Midleton Distillery.


Redbreast 12 Year Old Pot Still

A classic single pot still Irish whiskey, Redbreast 12 is always highly praised by the critics. Named 'Overall Irish Whiskey of the Year' at the 2013 Irish Whiskey Awards, one of our absolute favourites.

Rich, nutty & oily. Notes of dried fruits, ginger & linseed on the nose.

On the palate, spicy and round. Citrusy with hints of almonds, dried fruits and a hint of Sherry. Long and creamy,  smooth and spicy.


Redbreast Lustau Edition

A relatively recent addition to the Redbreast family.  Maturation begins in a combination of American and European oak casks for between 9 to 12 years and then gets a further year in first fill Oloroso Sherry casks from renowned Sherry producer Bodegas Lustau.

On the nose, citrus peel, spice, almonds and juicy dried fruits.

On the palate, notes of chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and dried fruits which evolve into a long, satisfying finish.
