Jameson is paying homage to a classic Irish whiskey style with the launch of Jameson Single Pot Still.

The new expression is produced from a mash bill of malted and unmalted barley and is triple distilled. It is matured in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, along with a trio of virgin oak casks: American, European, and Irish.

Master distiller Kevin O'Gorman, who oversaw the new whiskey's creation, said: "It has been an honour and a joy to work on rebuilding a traditional Jameson expression with an innovative twist and bringing a new member into the Jameson family.

“While crafting this whiskey, the team at Midleton Distillery worked hard to find the exact balance and flavour profile for our finished product. We wanted to showcase the quintessential notes of the single pot still style by blending the familiar ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks before bringing a new dimension with the introduction of the virgin oak casks."

Deirdre O'Carroll, blender at Midleton Distillery, said: "Through some trial and error along the way, working with different prototypes and flavour combinations, we found the right balance for our Jameson Single Pot Still. We have created a whiskey that is robust and spicy by single pot still’s nature, but also intriguingly complex and bearing the trademark Jameson smoothness. We couldn’t be more proud of the results.”

Bottled at 46% ABV, Jameson Single Pot Still whiskey is priced at RRP €60 (GP£53) per 700ml bottle and is available in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Dublin Airport, the UK, as well as at Jameson brand homes and jamesonwhisky.com.

Pot still whiskey is a style firmly rooted in the Emerald Isle. A technical file denoting legal requirements for pot still Irish whiskey, which Irish Distillers helped to draw up, was accepted by the EU in 2014. However, the technical file is currently under review after other producers of Irish whiskey questioned elements of the legislation, particularly the mash bill requirements.
