Redbreast 12 Year Old Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey has taken home the World Whisky Trophy at the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC).
The competition awarded Redbreast 12 Year Old with its highest honour across Irish, American and Japanese whiskeys after it scored an impressive 98 points. Also honoured were Midleton Very Rare Barry Crockett Legacy and Jameson Cooper’s Croze, with 98 points.
Success at the IWSC parallels stand-out performances for the Midleton portfolio at the Beverage Testing Institute, with both Jameson Bow Street 18 Years Cask Strength and Redbreast 21 Year Old receiving platinum medals, the BTI’s most prestigious award. Irish Distillers also took home 27 medals out of the 67 medals on offer at The Irish Whiskey Masters, with 16 gold medals and 7 Masters awarded across the range.
Commenting on the recent accolades, Billy Leighton, Redbreast Master Blender at Midleton Distillery, said: “We are thrilled to see more fantastic results at such prestigious global spirits tasting competitions. It is great to see the Redbreast range flourish as it continues to excite consumers with its exemplary single pot still Irish whiskey style. These awards are truly a testament to the craftsmen at Midleton Distillery who assist me in blending the finest Irish whiskeys in the world, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds!”
