Redbreast Prize Draw: The Whisky Exchange

Prize Draw

WIN A bottle of Redbreast 29 Year Old Dream Cask

Buy a bottle of Redbreast 12 Year Old or Redbreast Lustau Edition this September for a chance to take home this exceptional Irish whiskey.

This 2021 Redbreast Dream Cask was aged in a combination of ex-bourbon, sherry and ruby port casks before finishing in a single oloroso sherry butt. Long years in the Midleton warehouses have created a deep, complex palate filled with tropical fruits, nutmeg and a distinctive liquorice note that the team behind Redbreast attribute to the influence of rich oloroso sherry.

Picking the perfect cask

‘There is no greater joy in my job than to come across an excellent cask while conducting a sensory assessment of our whiskeys,’ blender Dave McCabe tells us. ‘The liquorice aromas instantly transport us to the bodegas of Jerez, celebrating Redbreast’s relationship with the region for over three decades.’

‘Sherry seasoned casks have been at the heart of Redbreast Irish Whiskey since its resurrection in 1991 and we are thrilled that this Dream Cask could pay homage to that iconic relationship.’

Just 924 bottles of this rare Redbreast were ever made. The rest were sold by ballot to members of the fan community, The Birdhouse.

The Story of Redbreast

The Redbreast story begins in the late 19th century with a partnership between wine merchants W&A Gilbey and distillers John Jameson & Son. Under this agreement, Jameson’s Bow Street distillery supplied pot still spirit that was matured in sherry casks at Gilbey’s warehouses across the River Liffey. Advertisements for ‘Redbreast J.J. Liqueur Whiskey’ appear as early as the 1910s – the predecessors of the richly sherried Redbreast we enjoy today.

Uniquely Irish Whiskey

Modern Redbreast is produced at Midleton, one of the few distilleries that still makes traditional Irish pot still whiskey. The brand’s signature combination of tropical fruit and complex spice is achieved by aging this unique spirit in a combination of cask types, including a significant proportion of oloroso sherry butts. This exceptionally aged single cask represents the very best of the Redbreast whiskies.
