Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey hosted by Irish Distillers Head Blender, Billy Leighton, on Facebook LIVE –
Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is inviting whiskey drinkers around the world to tune into # Redbreast Dream Cask; a Facebook LIVE tasting of a rare and exclusive Redbreast Irish whiskey to celebrate World Whisky Day 2017 at 7pm on Saturday 20th May.
Head Blender Billy Leighton has hand-selected an exceptional Redbreast single cask to mark the occasion and will reveal the age, cask type and tasting notes during the tasting. Billy will lead the 20-minute tasting with Redbreast Apprentice Blender Dave McCabe, from warehouse A1 in the grounds of the Midleton Distillery, to a global audience of whiskey fans.
For the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to taste along at home, whiskey fans are invited to join the new online Redbreast members’ club, The Birdhouse, before Tuesday 9th May 2017. All they have to do is visit RedbreastWhiskey.com/TheBirdHouse
or the Redbreast Facebook page Facebook.com/RedbreastSinglePotStill
for the chance to take part in the one-off tasting – Twenty new members will be announced on 10th May 2017.
#RedbreastDreamCask is a single cask single pot still Irish whiskey that offers a unique take on Redbreast’s full bodied flavour profile, renowned for its signature Christmas cake character – the result of a strong contribution from Oloroso sherry casks. This mystery single cask is destined to be blended into the decorated Redbreast family, but not before its secrets are revealed by Billy and Dave on World Whisky Day.
Leighton and McCabe will take Irish whiskey fans on a whistle-stop journey through the history of Redbreast and share the qualities that make the range the definitive example of single pot still whiskey from Ireland, followed by a tasting of the precious whiskey and a short Q&A.
Billy Leighton, Head Blender at Midleton Distillery, explains:
“I’ve poured over our maturing casks at Midleton and have drawn a special expression of Redbreast that demonstrates the character of the family and reinforces single pot still whiskey as the quintessential style of whiskey from Ireland. I’m looking forward to leading the tasting with Dave and slowly revealing the secrets of this mysterious whiskey on Facebook LIVE – it promises to be unmissable experience, as my dream Redbreast cask will never be tasted like this again.”
