Redbreast Dream Cask (46.5% ABV) is a single cask, single pot still Irish whiskey, which was laid down to mature in a re-fill American Oak ex-Bourbon barrel in 1985, before being re-casked into a first-fill Oloroso Sherry-seasoned butt in 2011.

This latest Redbreast release, is said to follow the requests from consumers and whiskey experts over the past 12 months and becomes the first in a new series planned for the coming years.
Redbreast Dream Cask, was originally unveiled during a Facebook LIVE tasting to mark Redbreast’s World Whisky Day 2017 celebrations. Participants praised the quality and rarity of what is now the oldest Redbreast Irish whiskey ever to go on sale, with many requesting that the whiskey be made available to buy.
Commenting on the launch, Billy Leighton, Redbreast Master Blender, said: “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.”
Redbreast Dream Cask, will be available from the brands online members’ club ‘The Birdhouse’ on World Whisky Day (Saturday 19th May) for a RRP of €500.00.
