Irish Distillers, has announced the launch of a new expression from its Jameson Irish whiskey brand.

Jameson Single Pot Still, which was created by Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman, is said to celebrate the traditional style of Irish whiskey after which it is named and is a throwback to an era when Irish whiskey reigned supreme.
Throughout the 19th century, the Jameson Bow Street Distillery was famed worldwide for its single pot still whiskey – from Europe to Africa and South America. However, tastes changed, and so did Jameson’s approach. The decision was made in the late 20th century to switch to a blended whiskey to make it more accessible and attractive to new audiences. Today, inspired by Jameson’s rich history, the team made the exciting decision to masterfully recreate the signature single pot still style so that everyone can enjoy a piece of Jameson history.
This latest Jameson release is said to deliver notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, rich toasted oak, sweet honeycomb, salted caramel, zesty fruit, dairy fudge, butterscotch, vanilla and pot still spices on the nose. Followed by notes of rich dark chocolate, spicy toffee, ground cinnamon, grated ginger, orange peel and seasoned oak on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Kevin O’Gorman, said: “We are delighted with the release of Jameson Single Pot Still. 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.”
Jameson Single Pot Still, is now available online and from specialist retailers in Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK, and from Dublin Airport and Jameson Brand Homes for a RRP of €60.00.
