Thousands of whiskey fans entered an online ballot to purchase the new limited-edition Redbreast Dream Cask Ruby Port Edition, produced by Irish Distillers at its world-renowned Midleton Distillery in Cork. With just 912 bottles produced, a staggering 7,400 people signed up for a chance to purchase this year's Dream Cask, launched through Redbreast's Birdhouse online members' club to mark World Whiskey Day 2020. Bottle number one will be auctioned the Celtic Whiskey Shop in Dublin, with all proceeds going to Marys Meals Ireland https://www.marysmeals.ie/.
Billy Leighton, Master Blender at Irish Distillers, commented: "This is the first year we have launched Redbreast Dream Cask through a ballot system to make it as fair as possible for whiskey lovers to try our dream creation. The response has been phenomenal, with winners from a diverse range of countries; from Ireland, the UK, Germany and across Europe to Hong Kong, New Zealand, Japan and many more. While we wish every entrant could have the opportunity to taste this year's Redbreast Dream Cask, we're delighted that many successful Birdhouse members will soon be enjoying this exceptional whiskey."
