Redbreast, 21-year-old, Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey (46%)

Description

A range of aromas including fresh tropical fruits, nuts and rich dried fruit on the nose lead to a creamy mouthfeel complete with notes of luscious fleshy fruit, soft vanilla, toasted oak and sherry nuttiness. The experience finishes with  a long lingering finish complete with a a pot still spiciness. 

Redbreast 21 year old is the fi nest representation of the signature Redbreast sherry style - it is the oldest and richest expression of the Redbreast style ever produced; and the 21 year ageing process introduces new levels of depth, fl avour and taste to create an inherently complex and ultimately, rewarding whiskey. It is made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, triple distilled in copper Pot Stills, and, fi nally, matured in a combination of American bourbon barrels and fi rst fi ll Spanish oloroso sherry casks.

About this SPIRIT

Jameson

Jameson

John Jameson's Dublin Distillery was founded in 1780. His family motto and guiding philosophy was Sine Metu, meaning Without Fear, which appears today on every bottle of Jameson Irish Whiskey. He set new standards in whiskey distilling by investing in the latest manufacturing processes. When he discovered that certain strains of barley made a superior whiskey, he persuaded local farmers to grow them by providing seed grain every spring.

In 1858, a blight destroyed France's vineyards and consequently supplies of brandy dried up. Traditional brandy drinkers switched to Irish whiskey and Jameson sales soared. Before Prohibition in 1919, Jameson was one of the best selling whiskeys in America. But after Prohibition, exports of Jameson to the USA ground to a halt. Up until 1922, Jameson was the most popular whiskey in the British Empire. But after Irish Independence, English tariff barriers priced it out of the market. Without overseas demand, all 400 Irish whiskey brands fell into decline.

By 1966, only four whiskey distilling companies were left in the Republic of Ireland. John Jameson & Sons was one of them. Eventually the four joined forces and formed Irish Distillers. In 1975, Irish Distillers opened a new state of the art whiskey distillery in Midleton Co. Cork. Jameson Whiskey was then distilled outside of Dublin for the first time in 200 years.
