Jameson is the best-selling Irish whiskey in the world, and the world's third largest single-distillery whiskey, with its annual sales in 2019 passing 8 million cases. The whiskey was originally produced at the old Jameson Distillery in Bow Street in Dublin, which was founded by Scottish lawyer John Jameson in 1780, after marrying the eldest daughter of the famous whisky distiller John Haig. Of their eight sons, four followed in their father’s footsteps, John Jameson II at the distillery in Bow Street, while others went on to establish their own companies. In early 1800s, Dublin was the center of world whiskey production, and by 1805 Jameson had become the world's number one whiskey. John Jameson II took over the business in 1805, and grew and developed the company until he passed it on to his son, John Jameson III in 1851. However, history happened. Temperance movements across the world and the Irish War of Independence set the company back in the domestic and international markets. Irish whiskey makers with their labor-intense processes and single pot stills also had a hard time competing with Scottish distillers, who increased their production by introducing column stills.

In 1966 John Jameson & Son merged with John Power & Son, and the Cork Distilleries Company to form the Irish Distillers Group. In 1976, the production of Jameson was moved to New Midleton Distillery in the East Cork town of Midleton, when the group’s production was consolidated. The old distillery in Bow Street was turned into a museum and visitor center. In 2016, a Maturation Warehouse was built on the site as part of a major renovation. Irish Distillers have been part of the Pernod Ricard group since 1988.

Jameson Bow Street 18 Years is a special blend of rare pot still and grain Irish whiskeys produced at the Midleton distillery, launched in 2018. After ageing in American bourbon barrels and Spanish sherry butts for 18 years, these whiskeys are married together and spend their final finishing period at the original Jameson Distillery Bow Street, in the warehouse that can only hold 84 casks. This is the brand’s rarest release, bottled once per year at cask strength.

The nose has rich wood-driven influence with deep toffee notes and spice. Toffee and oak remain consistent on the palate, with hints of leather and vanilla and a subtle sherry nuttiness adding depth and complexity. The finish is long and full, with sweet toffee notes slowly fading, while the toasted oak and spice linger on until the very end.
