This exclusive blend is unique in that is only made a few days of the year. It is not used by any other Jameson Label.
You'd be hard-pressed to find a more iconic name in the Irish whiskey world than "Jameson." The Jameson tradition dates all the way back to 1740, when John Jameson was born into a family whose motto, "Sine Metu" ("Without Fear"), was earned through the family's courage in fighting pirates on the high seas during the 1500s. John Jameson himself was a living embodiment of Sine Metu, and his ancestors' bravery inspired in John a boldness that led him not only to open his own distillery in the latter 18th century, but also to pioneer the technique of triple-distilling whiskey — now the gold standard in the Irish whiskey industry. John Jameson lived to be 83 — an impressive feat for someone born in the 18th century — and his descendants John II, John III and John IV all honored his legacy by leading the distillery well into the 20th century. Jameson Irish Whiskey is crafted from a mash of malted and unmalted barley that is triple-distilled — just as it was by John Jameson himself centuries ago — through three separate copper-pot stills: a wash still, a feint still and, finally, a spirit still. The mash itself is made using barley, maize and pure Irish water, further adding to the unique character of the whiskey. As an experiment, Jameson recently sent several of its used casks to Franciscan Well, a craft Irish brewery, for use in aging the brewery’s lagers, ales, stouts and wheat beers. Franciscan Well is built on an old monastery which dates back to 1219, and much like the Jameson Distillery, Franciscan Well combines modern production techniques with rich, Irish tradition. This Jameson Select Reserve Small Batch is a blend of 12 years old, pot still Irish Whiskey, and 5 year old Grain Whiskey. This exclusive blend is unique in that is only made a few days of the year. It is not used by any other Jameson Label. The whiskeys are matured in either toasted Sherry casks or charred Bourbon barrels. This Select Reserve is treasured by Irish Whiskey connoisseurs all over the world. Pick up your bottle today!
