It all started back in 1780 when John Jameson created his triple distilled, smooth Irish whiskey and John knew a thing or three about making great tasting whiskey. Thatís why, today, we continue his tradition and make sure that Jameson Irish Whiskey is always as perfect as the day John Jameson released his first cask from his Single Distillery - triple distilled, twice as smooth and perfectly balanced.
Triple Distilled, Twice as Smooth
The number three. The ancient Greek, Pythogoras, described it as the perfect number. And, as everybody knows, three timeís a charm. So, unlike American whiskies, which are usually distilled just once, and Scotch whiskies, which try a little harder with two distillations, we distil Jameson Irish Whiskey three times.
Balance is also important. While we love the number three (itís been good to us), weíre also very keen on the dynamic equilibriums of two forces balanced to create perfection. We mix precisely the right amount of malted barley and exactly the right amount of unmalted barley. Likewise our pot still whiskeys complement our delicate grain whiskeys beautifully. We balance the nutty flavours of our sherry casks with the fragrant vanilla of our bourbon casks. All resulting in a perfectly balanced whiskey.
And finally, we could not talk about our triple distillation and perfect balance without mentioning our Midleton Single Distillery. It is where, under the one roof and under the careful gaze of our whiskey masterminds, that every drop of Jameson Irish Whiskey is created, meaning we can guarantee the quality of every last sip.
