The Midleton Distilleries situated in Midleton, Cork County, Ireland, produces pure pot still Whiskey or single pot still as it's now officially known. It is made in a different way than Single Malt because the mash is made from both malted and un-malted green barley. The enzymes in the malted barley stimulate the production of malt in the un-malted barley. Also, Single Malt Whiskeys are generally distilled twice, whereas single pot still Whiskeys more often than not distilled three times.
 
Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey 12YO is one of two Whiskeys on the market that are 100% single pot still Irish Whiskeys. It’s this — the process of making Whiskey in a copper pot still — from both malted and unmalted barley, that makes this Redbreast unique. Moreover, no grain Whiskey is added to the 12 Year Old. It’s highly regarded as one of the best (if not the best) Irish Whiskeys, by notable critics and laymen alike.

William Grant's Tullamore D.E.W. is also produced at New Midleton Distillery.
There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
A Whiskey academy was started in 2013 at the Midleton Distillery.
Whiskey producers lose on average about 2% of their stock a year to angels' share. For Jameson, the biggest one of the Irish Whiskey brands, it means 29 thousand bottles going into the air (literally) every day!
Irish Coffee recipe: 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3-4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey, heavy cream - slightly whipped.
