Jameson St. Patrick's Day Limited Edition Original Irish Whiskey
This limited-edition bottle of Jameson features custom artwork by the Dublin local artist Steve McCarthy.
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 a boldness in John that led him not only to open his own distillery in the latter part of the 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. Jameson Original Irish Whiskey is a blend of pot still and fine grain whiskeys that have been aged for a minimum of 4 years. The whiskey is aged in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks to add spicy and sweet notes. As a result, the whiskey is slightly floral on the nose with hints of spicy sweetness, which leads to a palate of spicy caramel notes combined with subtle notes of vanilla and almonds. The finish is smooth with notes of sherry and sweet fruit. This year's bottle was designed by local artist Steve McCarthy as a tribute to the city he, and Jameson, call home. Like most of his work, this bottle draws from a famous Irish phrase, “chancing your arm”, otherwise known as stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new things. This St. Patrick’s Day, pick up a bottle of Jameson,the authentic whiskey that has called Dublin home since 1780.
