Redbreast Iberian Series Launches With Pedro Ximénez Edition


27th September 2021
Redbreast unveils limited edition Redbreast Pedro Ximénez Edition which joins the existing Lustau Edition to form 'The Iberian Series' which celebrates the brand’s long-standing connection to some of the Iberian Peninsula’s most celebrated cooperages and winemakers.

Redbreast Iberian Series - Redbreast Pedro Ximénez EditionRedbreast Irish Whiskey, produced by Irish Distillers at Midleton Distillery, has unveiled Redbreast Pedro Ximénez Edition which will join their existing Redbreast Lustau Edition to form 'The Iberian Series' celebrates the brand’s long-standing connection to some of the Iberian Peninsula’s most celebrated cooperages and winemakers.

Redbreast Pedro Ximénez Edition will join the Lustau Edition in the inaugural Redbreast Iberian Series line up in yet another example from Midleton's whiskey makers of how Ireland and Iberia’s rich heritages, as the purveyors of some the world’s finest spirits and wines, can combine to create whiskey.

The first limited edition release to join the series, Redbreast Pedro Ximénez Edition is a single pot still Irish whiskey, triple distilled and initially matured in ex-bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks before being re-casked into delectable Pedro Ximénez hogsheads from the southern tip of Spain for a minimum of 12 months. Just half the size of a standard sherry butt, the increased surface area of the hogshead intensifies the flavour contribution from the Pedro Ximénez-soaked wood, imparting notes of treacle, raisins and orange zest thanks to the sweeter grape variety used in the world renowned sherry.

Redbreast Lustau Edition – launched in 2016 to critical acclaim around the globe – will remain the anchor expression in the Redbreast Iberian Series and will be joined by a new Limited Edition release from time to time.

Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Pedro Ximénez Edition is bottled at 46% ABV and without chill-filtration it has a RRP of £72 and will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
