One word: Inspiring.
Irish Distillers — the producers of Jameson, Powers, Paddy, Redbreast, Green Spot, and Midleton Very Rare Whiskies along with Huzzar Vodka and Cork Dry Gin — stubbornly adhere to their time tested methods and practices for making the world’s most popular Irish Whiskies.
Redbreast Whiskies drip from the stills at their Midleton Distillery — a former wool mill, subsequently transformed into a what is now one of Ireland’s most iconic distilleries and home to the world’s largest still with a capacity of over 31,000 gallons. Redbreast sets itself apart by being one of the very few remaining Single Pot Still Whiskies and comes in four variants ranging from 12 to 21 years old. All of their expressions are well worth exploring.
Redbreast 21 has been called a masterpiece by a few big names in the Whiskey business.
They take the wonderful base spirit and hand it to a Jedi who uses the Force and other magic to transform it into one of the best — if not THE best — Irish Whiskies we’ve had the pleasure of tasting. It's aged for 21 years in first fill Sherry and Bourbon casks. If you're yet unfamiliar with Redbreast, this one makes for a great introduction.
Single Pot Still Whiskey is rather unique and only a handful of Irish Whiskey shops still distill in this fashion. Oddly, the term has nothing to do with the still itself. It’s much like a single malt Whiskey, but it uses a combination of both malted and unmalted barley in the mash. And where a single malt Whiskey is usually distilled twice, Single Pot Still Whiskey is usually distilled three times, making the Whiskey taste a little earthier and bringing out the flavor of orchard fruits.
