11,000 Sign Up For The Redbreast Dream Cask 2021 Release

26th May 2021
Over 11,000 Redbreast Irish whiskey fans sign up for the chance to buy 1 of 924 bottles of the latest instalment of the Redbreast Dream Cask series, the Oloroso Sherry Edition, a 29 Year Old Irish single pot still whiskey.

Redbreast Dream Cask 29 Year Old Oloroso Sherry Edition 2021

Redbreast Irish single pot still whiskey has revealed that the fourth annual release in their Birdhouse members only Dream Cask Collection, the Redbreast Dream Cask Oloroso Sherry Edition, a 29 Year Old Irish single pot still whiskey attracted over 11,000 entries for the ballot for a chance to get hold of one of the 924 bottles which were available globally.

Considering that it was €520 for the 500ml bottle of the Dream Cask Oloroso Sherry Edition and that Irish Distillers received more than 11 times the entries than the number of bottles available it certainly illustrates just how highly rated these Dream Cask releases have become amongst Redbreast whiskey fans following rave reviews of the first couple of releases in the series.

I would doubt that there is another Irish whiskey brand that could attract as much interest as this for a bottle in this price range, I just hope for the 924 lucky ballot winners sake that the Dream Cask Oloroso Sherry Edition lives up to the high rating earlier releases received.

Billy Leighton, Master Blender at Irish Distillers, along with Blender Dave McCabe who between them have created all four of the whiskey's in the Dream Cask series to date commented: "This year’s release is extremely special to me as it combines traditional whiskey making with new ways of finishing to create a remarkable whiskey. A joy to behold with every sip, Dream Cask Oloroso Sherry Edition will take our successful entrants on a journey from Ireland to the Spanish bodegas of Jerez de la Frontera where our Oloroso cask was sourced.

"We have been overwhelmed by the phenomenal response to this year’s ballot and delighted to see the continued momentum for our renowned Redbreast Dream Cask collection. With consumers as far afield as Iceland, Hong Kong and South Africa we are proud to see Redbreast Irish Whiskey taking flight across the globe."

I think maybe Irish Distillers need to come up with another special bottling to release alongside the Dream Cask bottling on World Whisky Day to satisfy the demand from the over 10,000 disappointed Redbreast whiskey fans who didn't get lucky in the ballot and who were looking for something different and special to try, if they want a suggestion, how about an annual World Whisky Day release of a cask strength Redbreast 15 Year Old.

I  hope that you were one of the lucky ones in this years Dream Cask ballot, if not you can always console yourself with something from the current Redbreast whiskey range which you will find available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
