Matured for 18 years in hand-selected oak casks from Europe and America, Jameson 18 Year Old whiskey is finished in first-fill bourbon barrels. This rite of passage introduces subtle traces of vanilla to an exceptionally balanced, mellow whiskey with a lingering finale of wood, spice and toffee. An elder statesman of our portfolio, each bottle of this unique whiskey is individually numbered.
In 1780, John Jameson established a way of making Irish whiskey that we’ve been proudly sticking to ever since.
As you can imagine, producing a blended Irish whiskey that has been enjoyed for over two centuries, takes a lot. But don’t worry, we’ve distilled over 200 years of courage, craft and a collective appreciation for taste, into one short account. So here’s the secret behind our signature smoothness – our process and our people.
Following this family motto ever since has allowed us to produce whiskey through two world wars, an Irish civil war and even American prohibition. It’s also helped us discover new possibilities, new people and new ways of producing whiskey. The Jameson family motto means so much to us, that we proudly display it on the front of every bottle. Which is a handy way to ensure we never stray from it.
