Jameson has launched its latest expression, Jameson Single Pot Still, a new addition to the Jameson range in Australia and New Zealand, matured in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks.
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 history, the company decided to recreate the signature single pot still style for consumers to enjoy a sip of Jameson history.
Jameson Single Pot Still is crafted from a mashbill of malted and unmalted barley before being triple distilled. It is then matured in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, while also introducing the flavour contribution of three different types of Virgin oak casks: American, European, and Irish.
Bottled at 46% ABV, Jameson Single Pot Still whiskey is available now in Australia for RRP $110 and in New Zealand from March for RRP $120.
