Midleton Distillery launches The Jameson Anthology

The distillery behind Jameson is launching a collection of limited editions from the world-renowned Irish whiskey brand.

The Jameson Anthology draws inspiration from the history of whisky making and looks to the future. Its first 'volume', Jameson Remastered, celebrates the spirit of classic but discontinued whiskies and reinvents them for modern drinkers.

The first release in this volume is the Jameson 15 Years Old Single Pot Still: a reinvention of a whiskey that was last produced in 2000 as a limited edition, which comprises spirits matured in ex-bourbon and oloroso sherry casks. Its packaging also harks back to the past; it comes wrapped in newspaper, with one side referencing Jameson's heritage and the other marking the present day.

The soon-to-be-released second volume in The Jameson Anthology, Jameson Remixed, aims to present a new, experimental take on this iconic Irish whiskey.

Kevin O'Gorman, master distiller at Midleton Distillery, said: "It's been more than two decades since the last Jameson 15 Years Old was created and it has been a great opportunity to remaster this classic whiskey.

"For this limited-edition bottling, we seized the opportunity to combine the traditional single pot still style with the strong influence of the sherry casks, which was integral to historic whiskey production."

Blender Deirdre O'Carroll said: "It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with the team to bring Jameson fans a new 15 Years Old that has been remastered for the modern day. The inclusion of the sherry casks creates incredibly rich flavours and an extra-long fusion of fruits and spices, in line with traditional pot still flavours that are known and loved."

Bottled at 56.4% ABV, Jameson 15 Years Old Single Pot Still comes in a 500ml bottle and will retail at €300 (£255), with a limited quantity of 2,220 bottles available through two online ballots.

The first ballot opens to members of the Barrel Club Midleton Distillery at 9am Irish Saving Time (IST) on 4 April, while the second ballot opens to the general public at 2pm IST on 8 April. Shipping to successful entrants will take place from the end of April.
