Redbreast 32 Year Old Dream Cask 50cl Gift Pack with Apology Letter
Redbreast is a single pot still whiskey, for which a combination of malted and un-malted barley are triple distilled in copper pot stills. The brand was created by W.A. Gilbey & Co, and bottled using whiskey sourced from Jameson's Bow Street distillery in Dublin. When Jameson amalgamated with Powers and Cork Distillers to form the Irish Distillers group, the Dublin distilleries were closed down, with all production moved to New Midleton distillery in Cork in 1975. Gilbey's discontinued the brand ten years later, but agreed to sell it to Irish Distillers who relaunched it in 1991.
This highly sought-after expression was matured in an American oak ex-bourbon barrel for 26 years, and then finished in an Oloroso sherry-seasoned butt. Originally unveiled as part of a Facebook Live Whiskey tasting event in 2017, its popularity led to it being released for purchase a year later.
Charged from cask #41207, which yielded 816 bottles.
In presentation box with branded tumblers. This one includes the official apology letter from the distillery after many of these were originally shipped with broken glassware.
