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.
