Redbreast is a brand of single pot still Irish Whiskey produced by Irish Distillers. It was originally produced by Gilbey's, a Dublin spirits merchant using distillate sourced from Jameson's Bow Street Distillery.
The whiskey is crafted from a marriage of malted and unmalted barley, which are milled and mashed before being triple-distilled through traditional copper-pot stills. The inclusions of unmalted barley in the whiskey's mashbill, along with the tradition of triple distillation, are uniquely Irish approaches to producing whiskey.
The 15 year old expression of Redbreast was initially a one-off release that was eventually made a permanent part of the range due to it's huge popularity. 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.
