Redbreast 12 Year Old
Single Pot Cask Strength 115 Proof
Redbreast is nearly unique among Irish whiskeys as it is made entirely in the older style pot stills and without the addition of grain whiskey. It is the only pure Irish pot still whiskey available in the U.S. Unlike the vast majority of Irish whiskies, it is entirely made from malted and malted barley, while almost all other have the addition of grain-whiskey, one of the same key differentiators between single malt and blended whiskies.
Redbreast Cask Strength is the same whiskey without the addition of water, a standard step in the final production of nearly every spirit, which is done to bring the alcohol content down from the high level at which it leaves the aging casks. Redbreast cask strength is neither diluted with water nor chill-filtered, another standard step, which leaves it with a slightly murkier color and noticeably stronger proof, 115 vs. the usual 80, or 57.7% alcohol vs. 40%.
