When Redbreast Whiskey asked me to partner with them, I jumped at the chance. (It probably goes without saying, but this post is sponsored by Redbreast Whiskey. Thank you, Redbreast Whiskey.)
I have grown to love whiskey over the recent years. I remember the first time I tried whiskey. It was my first trip to Charleston, and I didn’t have any clue what I was ordering. I just knew that I wanted to try the recommended whiskey and dessert pairing. It was delicious! I couldn’t believe I was sleeping on whiskey for so long.
I continued to try whiskey here and there, and the more I started to understand the love and passion that goes into distilling a batch of whiskey, the more I appreciated the different tasting notes that each brand offers.
When Redbreast came into my life, I was, and honestly still am, very much a novice when it comes to whiskey. But, as they say, when you land on Redbreast, you know. It goes without saying that when you land on Redbreast, you must pass it on! It elevated every experience I savored it in and I loved their story.
With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, I wanted to introduce my best girlfriends to my new friend, Redbreast. I invited them over for whiskey-focused happy hour. First up, 27 Year Old. Neat. Of course.
I’ve honestly never had anything so special before. You can even taste the sherry and port notes as you savor the drink.
After we tried 27 Year Old, it was on to my go-to whiskey cocktail – the Old Fashioned. I crafted it with Redbreast’s 12 Year Old, Angostura bitters, some simple syrup, and an orange twist.
The Redbreast cocktails paired perfectly with some light charcuterie. So much so, that Charlie really wanted to be a part of the party.
Thank you to Redbreast for so kindly introducing me to their whiskey. I’m such a fan!
Produced in limited quantities on an ongoing basis, Redbreast 27 Year Old is now available in select U.S. markets for an MSRP of $500.
