Join newly appointed Midleton Distillery Master Blender Dave McCabe for one of his first tasting events as Master Blender as he leads us on a sensorial journey through three different Redbreast Irish Whiskey expressions, each at a different ABV and with a different maturation journey as we learn what makes each whiskey unique and the role they play in the Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey lineup.

The whiskeys 

We will ship samples of each of the below whiskeys directly to your door ahead of our tasting event. 

  1. Redbreast Lustau Edition
  2. Redbreast Ten Year Old Distillery Exclusive
  3. Redbreast Twelve Year Old Cask Strength

Dave will help us understand how new Redbreast expressions are conceived, the maturation journey each release goes on and answer all your questions related to the most sold and most awarded range of single pot still whiskeys in the world. 

Dave joined us in 2021 to introduce America to Redbreast Small Batch and lead us on a tasting. Catch up on that chat below.
