How Redbreast is Made

For more than a century Redbreast has stayed true to the Irish Pot Still whiskey-making tradition. Today it is considered the definitive expression of this quintessential style of Irish whiskey making – a living legacy.

Single Pot Still Whiskey has been safeguarded and nurtured under the watchful eye of the Midleton Distillery for almost two hundred years. Redbreast is proudly considered the ultimate expression of this Single Pot Still art.

Each pot still whiskey is made with a mash bill of a mix of malted and unmalted barley from farms in the Munster region surrounding our distillery. The soft, clear water we use at Midleton Distillery comes from the Dungourney River, which flows through the lush green hills of neighboring Clonmult.
