I received a wee bottle of Redbreast Dream Cask by surprise, a 32-year-old single pot still whiskey, together with some small gifts, like a beautiful glass. Just found out that here was an empty nest, so the RedBreast was right in time to fill in the gap.
Redbreast Irish whiskey, which is produced by Irish Distillers in Midleton Distillery, has launched the Redbreast Dream Cask, which will be available to buy through its online members’ club, The Birdhouse, from World Whisky Day (Saturday 19th May).
The release follows requests from consumers and whiskey experts over the past 12 months and becomes the first in a new series planned for the coming years.
Redbreast 21 Year Old has been recognised as the ‘Second Finest Whiskey in the World’ by leading whiskey writer, Jim Murray in his annual Jim Murray Whisky Bible – the highest accolade ever awarded by Murray to an Irish whiskey.
Scoring a near-perfect 97 out of 100 points, the pinnacle of the Redbreast range was also awarded ‘Best Irish Whiskey of the Year’ and ‘Best Irish Pot Still Whiskey of the Year’ for the second year running and the third time in four years since its launch in 2013. Continue reading

– A new twist on the sherry influenced pot still whiskey, thanks to an old friendship –
Redbreast has introduced a new, permanent expression to its decorated Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey family; Redbreast Lustau Edition. Finished in hand selected, first-fill sherry butts that are seasoned with Oloroso sherry from the prestigious Bodegas Lustau in Jerez, Spain, this release celebrates the iconic sherry influence found throughout the Redbreast range.
Redbreast, the most decorated Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey in the world, has unveiled its first ever single barrel offering, Redbreast Single Cask. Available globally from this month, the expression reinforces Irish Distillers’ commitment to rejuvenating the quintessential Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey style.
Redbreast Single Cask offers a unique take on Redbreast’s full bodied flavour profile, renowned for its signature Christmas cake character – the result of a strong contribution from Oloroso sherry casks. With just 576 bottles available exclusively through The Whisky Exchange at the recommend selling price of £180, the rare expression is expected to become highly sought after by Irish Whiskey connoisseurs and collectors.
