Crafted from a blend of malted and unmalted barley, Redbreast 12 undergoes triple distillation in copper pot stills, showcasing the intricate flavors and unique characteristics of Pot Still whiskey. This exceptional spirit matures in a blend of Bourbon-seasoned American Oak barrels and Oloroso Sherry-seasoned Spanish oak butts, allowing the distinct Redbreast sherry style to shine in every bottle. The Cask Strength expression provides a glimpse into the natural, full-flavored taste of Redbreast 12.

There was a time when all Irish whiskeys were distilled in copper pot stills from a mixture of malted and unmalted barley. Today, however, most Irish whiskey is column-distilled and focused more on mass distribution instead of quality. Redbreast is a rare survivor of the genre. Redbreast dates back to the early 20th-Century, when the bonding company Gilbey's of Ireland used the name for Jameson spirit which they matured and bottled, but since the 1990s it has been owned by Jameson's parent company, Irish Distillers Ltd. who stakes claim on most all of the premium whiskey made in Ireland.
