About Redbreast (whiskey)

Redbreast is a brand of single pot still type Irish Whiskey. The only consistently available expression is a 12-year expression although a 15 year old expression was released in 2010 and is expected to be an ongoing bottling variation. Redbreast comes in a green bottle, and the 12 year old is 40.0% ABV (80 proof) whereas the 15 year old is at 46% ABV and is non-chill filtered. It is produced at the New Midleton Distillery by Irish Distillers, a subsidiary of Pernod Ricard. In 2010, the Redbreast 12-year variation was proclaimed Irish Whiskey of the Year by whiskey writer, Jim Murray, and was also nominated as #1 buy in John Hansell's Buyer's Guide, which gave it a rating score of 96 points.
