On April 25th, Jameson announced the release of Jameson 18 Cask Strength which finishes its maturation in Dublin’s only live Maturation housed in the Jameson Distillery Bow Street, hence returning part of the production process to the brand’s original home in Smithfield for the first time since 1975. Distilled and matured at the Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork,

Jameson Bow Street 18 Years Cask Strength is the new head of the Jameson family. After spending 18 years in a collection of bourbon and sherry casks, the blend of pot still and grain Irish whiskeys has been married together and re-casked in first-fill ex-bourbon American oak barrels for a final six to 12 months in the Maturation House at the Jameson Distillery Bow Street. Marrying’ is a traditional method of re-casking batches of vatted whiskey and re-warehousing it to ensure infusion before bottling. The first batch is presented at 55.3% ABV without the use of chill-filtration and will be available in 20 markets from July 2018 at the RRP of €240. Billy Leighton,

Master Blender at Midleton Distillery, commented:

“I’ve long had the unique luxury of being able to taste Jameson straight from the barrel at cask strength. With this first ever global launch of a cask strength Jameson, I’m thrilled that Irish whiskey fans around the world can now experience the full intensity of our whiskey or add a few drops of water to enjoy it at their own preferred strength.”
