When you talk about Jameson, you have to start with the fact that it is the best-selling Irish whiskey in the world. Now, that is something worth drinking to.
John Jameson established the Jameson distillery in Dublin in 1780. As an entrepreneur and a dreamer, Jameson aspired to the be the best. As an Irish man, he wanted to make the best whiskey in the world. Jameson made his now famous whiskey with fresh barley and pure Irish water, the same ingredients used to this day. In his attempts to perfect his recipe, Jameson imported casks from all over the world, each with its unique aromas and qualities.
Today, many whiskey lovers around the world believe that John Jameson has indeed realized his dream and that Jameson whiskeys are the best in the world. Need proof? More than 63 million bottles of Jameson are sold each year.
Jameson whiskey contains 40% alcohol. Unlike Scotch and American Whiskeys, It is triple distilled to creates a well-balanced, smooth, easy to drink whiskey with rich aromas of fruit. Jameson’s balanced taste makes it ideal for use in mixed drinks and cocktails.
One of the gems of the Jameson range is Jameson Black Barrel, which is aged in a combination of sherry casks and twice-roasted American oak bourbon barrels from Kentucky. To create the Black Barrel blend, Jameson’s Master Blender carefully selects each barrel to ensure the result is a rich whiskey with bold flavors, vibrant spice notes, and aromas of nuts, vanilla, and berries.
Caskmates: a new whiskey from Jameson, aged in kraft stout beer casks. Jameson Caskmates is a fine example of what can happen when you give room to curiosity and collaboration. Whiskey and stout beer often share a shelf behind the bar. Well, the people at Jameson thought the two local favorites should be better acquainted.
In 2013, Jameson’s Master Distiller met the Master Brewer of the famous Franciscan Brewery in Cork, Ireland, stout capital of the world. Jameson’s distiller agreed to lend the brewery some of his whiskey barrels to see how the whiskey notes might affect their stout beer. Once the beer-soaked barrels returned to Jameson, they were used again to age whiskey. The stout-seasoned casks gave the beloved Jameson whiskey notes of cocoa, coffee, and butterscotch. Jameson Caskmates is a contemporary expression of Irish Spirit.
Every bottle of Jameson is guaranteed to feature fruit flavors, woody aromas and a long and pleasant finish.
