Redbreast 15 Year Old was initially a one-off release first created in 2005 for La Maison du Whisky in Paris, France. Due to the positive attention it received, it is now in regular production at the Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork.
This is one of the richest, and heaviest Irish pot still whiskeys. The bottling is vatted from whiskeys aged between 15 and 19 years old and the cask selection is from 1st fill bourbon and sherry barrels. Redbreast 15 Year Old has won many awards including a Gold Medal at the International Spirits Challenge 2010.
The genesis of Redbreast dates back to 1903 when John Jameson & Son entered into an agreement with the Gilbeys Wines & Spirits Import Company to supply them with new make spirit from their Bow St. Distillery. The brand died off with the closure of Jamesons distillery but was recently relaunched and is a huge favourite with both whiskey drinkers and connoisseurs.
