The Jameson brand is named for its founder, John Jameson, a Scot who was married into the famous Haig distilling dynasty. Jameson was one of the original Dublin whiskies and is synonymous with its spiritual ex-home, the Bow Street distillery in Ireland's capital. The Irish Wars of Independence, a subsequent trade war with Britain, and US Prohibition, all hit the whiskey industry there hard in the mid-20th century. The solution was the creation of the Irish Distillers Group, a merger between Jameson, Powers, and Cork Distillers in 1966. Now a Pernod Ricard subsidiary, Irish Distillers continue to produce Jameson at the New Midleton distillery in Cork, built-in 1975. Today it is the best-selling Irish whiskey in the world.
A well-aged and well-presented bottling of Jameson matured for a minimum of 18 years and finished in first-fill bourbon casks held at the original Bow Street distillery in Dublin.
This is the first batch of the 2018 releases.
