Irish Distillers Launches Redbreast Lustau Edition

Redbreast has introduced a new, permanent expression to its decorated Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey family; Redbreast Lustau Edition. It’s finished for one year in hand selected, first-fill Sherry butts that are seasoned with Oloroso sherry from the prestigious Bodegas Lustau in Jerez, Spain.

Irish Distillers Launches Redbreast Sherry Finish Lustau EditionThe release celebrates the iconic Sherry influence found throughout the Redbreast range with a whiskey that is matured in a combination of exceptional ex-Bourbon and ex-Oloroso Sherry casks.

The resulting spirit offers a nose of marmalade, candied orange, prunes and marzipan, with a rich and pleasant texture on the palate which features warm spices, and a long, sweet finish complemented by toasted and dark caramel-like notes of Oloroso sherry.

Redbreast Lustau Edition has been born out of the longstanding relationship between the Midleton Distillery, County Cork, and the unrivalled sherry house, Bodegas Lustau. Crafted to the exacting standards of Midleton Head Blender Billy Leighton, Redbreast Lustau Edition is a permanent addition to the Redbreast range.

Redbreast Lustau Edition is 46% ABV and non chill filtered, its available now in retail at €69.
