How many Jameson masters does it take to make a bottle of Rarest Vintage Reserve? All of them. Crafted from our vintage reserve oldest and rarest whiskeys, this collaborative, handcrafted effort is a triumph of Irish whiskey. A combination of meticulously chosen grain whiskey and port pipe-matured pot still whiskey, Rarest Vintage Reserve carries a mellow, delicate sweetness. We’re not alone in singing this whiskey’s praises; it won double gold at the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and was named ‘Irish Whiskey of the Year’ on two occasions by Malt Advocate magazine.
In 1780, John Jameson established a way of making Irish whiskey that we’ve been proudly sticking to ever since.
As you can imagine, producing a blended Irish whiskey that has been enjoyed for over two centuries, takes a lot. But don’t worry, we’ve distilled over 200 years of courage, craft and a collective appreciation for taste, into one short account. So here’s the secret behind our signature smoothness – our process and our people.
Following this family motto ever since has allowed us to produce whiskey through two world wars, an Irish civil war and even American prohibition. It’s also helped us discover new possibilities, new people and new ways of producing whiskey. The Jameson family motto means so much to us, that we proudly display it on the front of every bottle. Which is a handy way to ensure we never stray from it.
