The rumours amongst Irish whiskey enthusiasts have been well-founded as Irish Distillers launched the Redbreast Dream Cask through its online members’ club, The Birdhouse, on World Whisky Day (Saturday 19th May).
All 816 bottles were all snapped up within 2 hours! Redbreast Dream Cask is a 32-Year-Old single pot still Irish whiskey from a single cask that was hand-selected last year by Master Blender, Billy Leighton who commented:
“In almost 40 years as a blender, Redbreast Dream Cask is a real highlight as I am able to select my own, personal dream Irish whiskey and share it with the world. Our inaugural tasting in 2017 was by far the largest whiskey tasting I have ever held, and the feedback we have received from the whiskey community on the liquid has been phenomenal, so it’s an honour to see it bottled to mark World Whisky Day 2018 – and watch this space for our 2019 plans.”
