Established in 1780 at the famous John Jameson Distillery in Dublin, Jameson Irish Whiskey is a premium triple distilled whiskey with aromatic flavours of sherry, spice and toasted wood. Notably smoother than other whiskeys, its character remains true to the Pot Still whiskey tradition laid down by John Jameson in the 18th century, helping establish Jameson as the world’s no.1 selling Irish whiskey today.
