..a magnificent performance. Is this the most efficient whiskey on the planet? Peter Mulryan, Whiskey Critic. Redbreast 12 Year Old is the one aged Pure Pot still whiskey on sale as of late. It used to be first launched in 1939 as the brand name given to the pot still whiskey supplied by Jameson to whiskey bonders before bottling on the distillery became the norm in 1968. Stocks of whiskey in bonders stores petered out, and thus Redbreast all but disappeared until its re-launch by the distillery within the 1990s as a single pot still whiskey. This pure pot still whiskey is matured for no less than 12 years in sherry casks and Bourbon barrels. Like all good pot still whiskeys, it’s strongly flavoured and assertive, making it a rare treat for the connoisseur of fine old whiskey.
Redbreast 12 Year Old used to be awarded the trophy for the second one consecutive year within the International Wine & Spirits competition. Winner of Double Gold on the 2005 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
