The Redbreast brand, who now produce Redbreast 15 Year Old, dates back to 1912, when it was first produced under bond using Jameson product by W & A Gilbey.
Popularity of Redbreast had waned over time and it was not largely produced when it was bought over by Irish Distillers.
Over time however the company raised their own profile and that of their flagship brands. This in turn allowed them to go back to creating Redbreast, and it was launched again in 1996, in the form of a 12 year old that remains part of their core range today, alongside the Redbreast 15 Year Old.
Redbreast Single Pot Still 15 Years is currently produced in Jameson’s Midleton Distillery in Cork and has a number of bottlings in its range.
