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, 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.
Introduced as a part of the Whiskey Makers Series, The Distiller’s Safe is a celebration of the craft of Jameson Head Distiller, Brian Nation, and his mastery of the Irish pot still.

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.
Contrary to popular belief that Scots invented whisk(e)y, Irish whiskey was mentioned almost a century before its Scottish brother.
Its origin comes from the perfume distilling monks who decided to tweak the recipe a bit, creating Irish whiskey.
Irish whiskey doesn’t have a lot of rules and regulations to be considered “pure” and can be made with various grains and processes, as long as it is aged for at least three years in wooden casks and has a max ABV of 94.8%.
Floral perfume notes, fresh herbs, lively spices, barley sugar sweetness combines with the succulence of grapefruit and green pepper, with a touch of marzipan adding to the depth. The palate is initially filled with barley sugar sweetness, followed by hints of cinnamon and a touch of liquorice. Vibrant notes of citrus complement the nuttiness of ground almond. The finish is lightly zesty, with notes of barley.
