Jameson Single Pot Still launches as throwback to brand’s history

Pernod Ricard has launched Jameson Single Pot Still to recreate the single pot still style for which Jameson Irish whiskey was once known.

Earlier this year, Pernod Ricard launched the first Jameson Single Pot Still whiskey in decades, to kick off The Jameson Anthology series and the whiskey was created as a limited edition.

Now, a brand new iteration of the 46% ABV Jameson Single Pot Still whiskey has been created and bottled. It has been made from a mashbill of malted and unmalted barley before being triple distilled and matured in ex-Bourbon and ex-sherry casks as well as American, European, and Irish virgin oak casks.

Kevin O’Gorman, master distiller at Irish Distillers, part of Pernod Ricard, said: “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 the distillery, added: “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.”

The new Jameson Single Pot Still whiskey will retail at €60 per 700ml bottle and is set to be available in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Dublin Airport, the UK, as well as via Jameson online.

Pernod Ricard recently revealed plans to invest €50 million over the next four years towards making its Irish Distillers’ Midleton Distillery carbon-neutral.
