Whiskey is truly a drink for all seasons, but with the launch of a brand new Whiskey Tasting Flight in The Cocktail Bar, there is no better time to highlight Redbreast Irish Whiskey.
Redbreast is distilled in the Midleton Distillery, the home of Irish whiskey. The spirit began life in 1939, named after the Robin Redbreast, a bird so loyal to Ireland that it refuses to leave even throughout the bleak winter months.
It is best known as a triple-distilled, pot still Irish whiskey, and indeed, is one of the few single copper pot still whiskey brands still produced today. It is, in fact, the unique use of Midleton distillery’s stills that has contributed to maintaining its historical flavour, with a spicy and creamy mouth-feel, heightened by fruit and toasted oak.
For both seasoned whiskey connoisseurs, and those seeking an introduction to the spirit, our new whiskey flight is the perfect opportunity to explore the subtle nuances of the four varieties of Redbreast Irish Whiskey.
Our flight includes 4x15ml servings of the following whiskeys:
Redbreast 12 Year Old - 40% ABV
Full of aroma and ﬂavour, Redbreast 12 year old beneﬁts from a strong contribution of distillates which have matured in Oloroso sherry casks, giving it its trademark Christmas cake character.
Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength - 58.6% ABV
Savour the seminal Redbreast 12 year old in its natural, full-ﬂavoured state. Straight from the cask, unﬁltered, no water added.
Redbreast 15 Year Old - 46% ABV
Initially launched as a limited edition bottling to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of La Maison du Whisky and now a permanent addition to the family; Redbreast 15 year old is matured in a combination of Spanish Oloroso sherry casks and American Bourbon whiskey barrels.
Redbreast 21 Year Old - 46% ABV
This is the ﬁnest representation of the Redbreast style ever produced. The
21 year ageing process introduces new levels of depth, ﬂavour and taste to create an inherently complex and ultimately rewarding whiskey.
To avail of this unique whiskey experience, visit our Cocktail Bar and request our Redbreast Whiskey Tasting Flight. One of our knowledgable staff will be delighted to talk you through the myriad of flavours (or leave you in peace to enjoy them at your leisure).
