Redbreast 12 Cask Strength

Named Irish Whiskey of the Year by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible and Double Gold San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition winner of 2019, it’s Redbreast in its natural, full-flavored state – straight from the cask, no addition of water, non-chill filtered.

Jameson Distiller’s Safe

When you’re a master of your trade, you deserve a worthy tribute. Part of the Whiskey Makers Series, The Distiller’s Safe is an Irish Whiskey that celebrates the craft of our Head Distiller, Brian Nation, and his mastery of the Irish pot still. It also represents his command of the distiller’s safe, which allows him to confirm the quality of what’s inside the pot still, without having to open it.

Jameson 18

Matured for 18 years in hand-selected oak casks from Europe and America, this rare whiskey is finished in first-fill bourbon barrels. This rite of passage introduces subtle traces of vanilla to an exceptionally balanced, mellow whiskey with a lingering finale of wood, spice and toffee. An elder statesman of our portfolio, each bottle of this unique whiskey is individually numbered.

Power’s Gold Label

James Power established his first distillery in 1791 at John’s Lane in Dublin. Almost a century later in 1886, Powers set a new benchmark, becoming one of the first Irish producers to bottle its own whiskey. Power’s Gold Label is the first ever Irish Whiskey to be bottled in Dublin. The gold label not only set it apart from other makers, but signified its superior quality.

Powers Three Swallow

Powers Three Swallow Release is the 21st century embodiment of the traditional pure Pot Still whiskey style, which made Powers famous around the world. Three Swallow features all the singular characteristics of traditional Irish Pot Still whiskey - robust, spicy and powerful. It is matured primarily in American bourbon barrels where these characteristics are amplified and complemented with strong wood character. Marrying with a small sherry aged component gives Powers Three Swallow Release balance and finesse.

BONUS Five Farms Irish Cream

Five Farms is the world's first farm-to-table Irish cream liqueur. The rich dairy cream is produced in single batches in County Cork, Ireland, by five family-owned farms that go back generations. The cream is combined with 10% premium triple-distilled Irish whiskey within 48 hours of collection to become an extraordinary Irish cream liqueur. Every ingredient in Five Farms is authentically Irish, and the product is beautifully presented in a package that honors the long tradition of Irish dairy farming. Five Farms was awarded the Chairman's Trophy at the 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge, earning the highest score ever given to an Irish cream liqueur.

Redbreast 12 Cask Strength

Named Irish Whiskey of the Year by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible and Double Gold San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition winner of 2019, it’s Redbreast in its natural, full-flavored state – straight from the cask, no addition of water, non-chill filtered.

Redbreast Lustau

Another Double Gold winner of the 2019 San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition, Redbreast Sherry Finish Lustau Edition was born of a unique collaboration between the Bodegas Lustau and the Midleton Distillery thanks to an old friendship. Redbreast Lustau Edition is initially matured in traditional bourbon and sherry casks for a period of 9-12 years. It is then finished for 1 additional year in first fill hand selected sherry butts that have been seasoned with the finest Oloroso sherry from the prestigious Bodegas Lustau in Jerez, Spain.

Midleton Barry Crockett

Bearing the name of the celebrated second generation Midleton Master Distiller, Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy represents a selection of pot still whiskeys that have been matured exclusively in American bourbon barrels with a subtle contribution from a pot still distillate that has matured in an unseasoned American barrel. As a tribute to the man who is inextricably linked to the Midleton distillery and who has more than anyone, shaped the renowned Midleton style, Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy displays a distinctive Pot Still complexity yet is refined and poised on the finish.

Midleton Vintage Release

Created in 1984 and released annually since then, Midleton Very Rare is one of the most exclusive and sought after Irish whiskeys. Once a year our Master Distiller hand selects only the finest and rarest whiskeys available to him and then carefully blends them to create each annual vintage of Midleton Very Rare Vintage Release. Only a limited number of bottles of this unique Irish whiskey vintage are released each year.

Redbreast 21

Redbreast 21 year old is the finest representation of the signature Redbreast sherry style - it is the oldest and richest expression of Redbreast ever produced; and the 21 year ageing process introduces new levels of depth, flavor and taste to create an inherently complex and ultimately, rewarding whiskey. It is made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, triple distilled in copper pot stills, and finally, matured in a combination of American bourbon barrels and first fill Spanish Oloroso sherry butts.
