Redbreast was released in 1903 by Gilbeys with liquid sourced from the old Jameson Distillery on Bow Street. Originally called “J.J. Liqueur Whiskey 12 Year Old”, “Redbreast” was a nickname given to one of the whiskeys by Gilbey’s chairman at the time, who was an avid birdwatcher, in reference to the Robin Redbreast. Now distilled in Middleton Co Cork, The Redbreast range was the leader in the renaissance of Irish Pots Still Whiskey.
The oldest permanent release in the Redbreast family, the 27 year old is a Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey comprising exclusively of Pot Still whiskeys which have been triple distilled, matured in the finest bourbon, sherry and ruby port casks for no less than 27 years.
