Christmas is fast approaching so why not wrap up 2014 with a warming Irish whiskey?

Midleton Distillery, the home of Jameson Irish Whiskey, has released two delicious Single Pot Stills which could be perfect for you this festive season.
Pot Still whiskey is a style that is generally unique to Ireland, particularly to the Midleton Distillery in Cork, Ireland and is widely accepted to be synonymous of whiskey in Ireland. Where single malt is produced from 100% malted barley, pure pot still whiskey uses a mix of malted and unmalted barley. This mixed mashbill gives the whiskey a distinctive flavor known as ‘potstill’, which is not found in any other whiskey style.

First on the list is Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask: This award winning cask whiskey was named Best Irish Whiskey at Jim Murray’s whiskey Bible Awards due to its rich medley combining spices and fruit with hints of butterscotch and creamy oak. It is fast becoming legendary in its own right.

Second, we have Green Spot Irish Whiskey: This dangerously Moorish single pot is creamy and smooth on the palate. Made along side Redbreast and Jameson, Green Spot is made in small batches so don’t miss an opportunity to grab a bottle! It is perfect for those who desire a slightly sweeter taste than the Redbreast.

Of course if you’re looking for a blended whiskey, look no further than the Jameson – World famous for its distinctive flavour and smooth characteristics, this flagship whiskey sells more than 20 million bottles a year across the globe! Triple distilled from the finest Irish barley and pure spring water and then matured in oak casks. Jameson carries the hallmark of quality and is the most famous whiskey in Ireland.

Jameson tastes perfect neat or on a couple of cubes of ice – but try it in a cocktail this Christmas, you will not be disappointed!
