Redbreast is an exceptional Single Pot Still whiskey produced by the Midleton distillery.

Recognised as one of the best Irish Whiskeys in the world for its perfect balance and complexity similar to great Scotch whiskies, Redbreast is often called the "Irish nectar".

In 1966, John Jameson & Son decided to mingle with whiskey production companies John Power & Son and Cork Distillers Company and established the Irish Distillers Ltd., a sub-company today part of the Pernod-Ricard group. The complete whiskey production is today located in a new building in Midleton distillery, Cork.

Midleton is one of the most modern distilleries in the world. Its production capacity reaches near to 19 million litres a year. 13 stills are operating and make all types of Irish whiskeys combined (Irish pot still, single malt, single grain…).

The old distillery building, much more impressive, has been kept and turned into a museum. Named “The Jameson Heritage Center”, we may admire an amazing water wheel from 1852, a stationary steam machine used to power the distillery and the biggest still the world. It is in one of these old Georgian architecture stone buildings with red shutters that Barry Crockett, the current Midleton distillery Director, was born.

Nose: marked by fruity notes of exotic fruits, apricots and figs before evolving into toasted oak and spices.

Palate: sweet, with a rich bouquet of spices, the fruits intensify with a touch of vanilla.

Finish: long and complex. Fruits and spices finish the tasting with a final note of malted barley.
