JAMESON The Original Irish Whiskey (Triple Distilled)
JAMESON The Original Irish Whiskey (Triple Distilled) is a smooth and versatile blend of pot still and fine grain whiskeys. A timeless blended whisky that made the green bottle an icon, this Jameson is bottled at the standard 40% ABV, triple-distilled and aged for at least three years.
It’s aged in American and Spanish oak barrels. Although it is an Irish whiskey, which means it has been aged for at least three years in Ireland, the brand sources its barrels from Spain and the United States. Previously used to age bourbon, the casks contribute to the whiskey’s vanilla and toasted wood notes.
Jameson whiskey is made with locally sourced ingredients. The barley is grown in Ireland, and all of the water used in the manufacturing process comes from the Dungourney River, which runs directly through the distillery.
It’s a perfectly blended whisky, with the malted and unmalted barley meticulously measured not to overpower the other. The pot still whiskeys are also adjusted so that they complement the delicate grain whiskey. Finally, the flavour of the whiskey is perfected by using oak casks during maturation.
It has a warm, golden honey colour. It has a light floral scent peppered with spicy wood and sweet notes and has excellent smoothness with a perfect balance of spicy, nutty, and vanilla notes with hints of sweet sherry.
Since 2010, the Midleton Distillery has reduced its energy consumption by 30% and its water consumption by 33%. The bottle utilises up to 80% recycled glass and is 100% recyclable.

How to drink JAMESON, the Original Irish Whiskey (Triple Distilled)?
Like all the best whiskeys, JAMESON Original Irish Whiskey should be consumed when you can fully concentrate on it. After all, this drink was created with great thought and care. You’ll miss a lot of the delicate nuances if you gulp it down and then follow it up with a beer.
Save the shots for tequila or vodka. Pour yourself a tumbler or snifter of Jameson instead. 50 millilitres is an excellent starting point. Tasting it neat at room temperature is recommended to appreciate its robust flavour profile fully.
To really explore the scent, inhale before sipping. The nose is responsible for half of the enjoyment of the Irish whiskey. Take a small sip and let it linger on your tongue before swallowing to see what flavours you can sense.
You can add a few drops of water with a straw if it’s too strong. This reduces the alcohol content, allowing you to discern a broader range of aromatics and flavours.
If you prefer your whiskey chilly, add some ice. Choose a big ice cube or ball that will melt slowly. Whiskey stones are another excellent way to avoid dilution.
If you want to mix this whisky with something, you can try simple ginger and lime or a more fancy cocktail such as:
- Jameson, Ginger and Lime
- Jameson Irish Coffee
- Jameson Not a Shamrock Shake
To get the most out of your Jameson Triple Distilled, you can also drink it straight or on ice. Make a Hot Irish with boiling water, lemon juice, and a pinch of cinnamon if it’s cold outside.
When paired with a glass of Malaga wine, the richness and dark fruit notes imparted by the wine cask are easily visible. This delightful, easy-drinking dram might kick off a peaceful evening or add a unique twist to an Irish coffee.
