Recognized as one of the best Irish whiskeys in the world due to its amazing balance and structure very similar to Sctoch whiskies, Redbreast, often labeled as the "Irish nectar", has been awarded many prizes such as the "Best of the best 2003" award by Whisky Magazine and the Double Gold Medal 2011 of the San Franciso World Spirit Competition.

Wrapped up in red and green, Redbreast bottles up the warmth of the last days of summer, for a gorgeous blend of red fruits, malted barley and spices over a woody finish.

With the creation of the specific appellation, Redbreast became a Single Pot Still.

This appellation is exclusive to Ireland, and to Midleton distillery, just as Single Malt is attached to Scotland. One may consider the Single Pot Still as a quintessential expression of Irish whiskey. Redbreast is a combination of equal proportions of malted and non malted barley, according to the Pure pot still whiskey tradition, then triple-distilled in traditional copper stills that bring out the creaminess and sophisticated mouthfeel.

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.

    Colour: old gold with amber glow.

    Nose: rich and suggestive, it is characterised by red fruits (blackcurrant) and ripe peach. Evolving onto delicate notes of charred woord and sweet spices (pink peppercorns).

    Palate: with a rich, generous attack, it is dominated by red fruit (blackcurrants). It gradually reveals exotic fruit (coconut) and ripe fruit (apricots and peaches). It also offers toffee and praline flavours.

    Finish: long and firm, it evolves with spices (sweet pepper) and candied fruit (peaches). It persists with notes of very ripe pear.
