Redbreast is een pot-still Irish whiskey van de Irish Distillers in Dublin. Het is een blend van oude zeer goed gerijpte whiskey's, waarvan de jongste blend 12 jaar oud is. Redbreast 12 years old is tamelijk exclusief verkrijgbaar, maar het proeven waard, want het is een karakteristieke Irish pot-still whiskey.

Uitgebreide informatie

Redbreast 12 years old is een klassiek voorbeeld van een zuivere pot-still whiskey en gerijpt in sherryvaten. Pot-still's whiskey's onthullen hun rijpe, zuivere smaak op hun eigen milde wijze, met intens geurende aroma's, de intens olierijke smaak en de afgeronde body, die de Ierse Whiskey zo kenmerkt.

What is Single Pot Still?
POT STILL IRISH WHISKEY is a style of whiskey which is unique to Ireland in general and to the Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork, in particular. It is regarded as the quintessential style of Irish whiskey.

Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, which is then triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills, Pot Still Irish Whiskeys are characterised by full, complex flavours and a wonderful, creamy mouthfeel. The inclusion of unmalted barley to the mashbill, along with the tradition of triple distillation, defines the character of Pot Still and this uniquely Irish approach to whiskey distillation.

Single Pot Still Whiskeys (whiskeys originating from a single distillery) were once the norm in Ireland and from the late 18th century to the early 20th century, Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey was the most sought after whiskey style in the world.

Indeed, by the turn of the 20th century, more Pot Still whiskey was exported from Ireland than any other whiskey style from any other country. However, a number of unfortunate coincidences led to the demise of full flavoured Pot Still Irish Whiskeys and to the rise of the lighter, more accessible blended whiskeys, which combined lighter grain whiskeys with the fuller flavoured Pot Still whiskeys or Malt whiskies.

While Pot Still Irish Whiskey continues to be used as a key component in many well known brands of blended Irish whiskey, by the turn of the millennium only two Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey brands had survived – Redbreast & Green Spot. However, in recent years this style of whiskey has enjoyed a renewed groundswell of interest from whiskey writers and enthusiasts alike, giving rise to demand for new expressions and now, to the ‘Single Pot Still Irish Whiskeys of Midleton’ range
