Jameson Crested Whisky

Jameson Crested Whiskey

The Jameson Crested is a blended Irish whiskey from the house of Jameson Whiskey, the market leaders among Irish whiskey brands worldwide. It is a triple distilled, no-age-statement blend released to replace the previous Jameson Crested Ten expression.

This expression was released in early 2016, and was touted by the company as a tribute to the first drops of whiskey distilled at Jameson’s Bow Street Distillery. The distillery is no longer producing spirit for the Jameson brand, instead featuring as a tourist attraction.

History of The Jameson Crested Whiskey

The Jameson brand was established by John Jameson in 1780, after he arrived in Dublin, Ireland from Scotland, where he originally hailed from. Jameson was married to the daughter of John Haig, one of Scotland’s most well-known distillers at the time.

Jameson began distilling his whiskey at the Bow Street Distillery in 1780, and did so alone for the next 25 years. In 1805, his son joined the business, officially making it a family venture. The company continued to be a family-owned venture for over a century, becoming incorporated as John Jameson & Son Ltd in 1901.

Over the years, Jameson became the biggest player in the Irish whiskey industry. The distillery was producing astonishing quantities of spirit annually in order to keep up with the equally astonishing demand for their product globally.

The Jameson Crested series was first introduced by the brand in 1963, and the most recently discontinued expression of the brand was named the Jameson Crested Ten.

The currently available version of Jameson Crested was released in April 2016. It was the recipient of a string of consecutive Gold medals at The Irish Whiskey Masters in the Blended Super Premium whiskey category.

Making Process of The Jameson Crested Whiskey

Jameson Crested is a no-age-statement blended Irish whiskey, created by marrying spirit obtained from malted and unmalted pot still whiskeys, and grain whiskey.

A considerably higher proportion of the blend has been matured in ex-Sherry barrels, whereas the rest has been matured in traditional ex-Bourbon barrels. The whiskey was very well received upon release, and has done exceptionally well both critically and commercially.

Alcohol Percentage in The Jameson Crested Whiskey

The Jameson Crested carries an alcohol strength of 40% ABV, the standard permissible limit for Irish whiskeys.
