Jameson Crested Ten

 
 

79,95

Jameson’s Crested Ten was introduced in 1963. Crested Ten is a complex blend of aged whiskeys and is a testament to the Jameson tradition of quality. Crafted by the Master Blender, each whiskey is carefully chosen for it’s particular character and skilfully married together. Despite it’s name it is actually 7-9 years old, approximately 60% of the blend being pot still and 40% grain. This is the old expression, discontinued in 2006.

Description

The company was founded in 1780 when John Jameson established the Bow Street Distillery in Dublin. Jameson was Scottish, a lawyer from Alloa who had married Margaret Haig, a sister of the brothers who founded the main Haig firms, and related to the Steins, a Scottish distilling family with interests in Dublin. In 1780 the Bow Street Distillery was producing about 30,000 gallons annually. By the turn of the 19th century, it was the second largest producer in Ireland and one of the largest in the world, producing 1,000,000 gallons annually. Dublin at the time was the centre of world whiskey production. It was the second most popular spirit in the world after rum and internationally Jameson had by 1805 become the world’s number one whiskey.

In 1966 John Jameson merged with Cork Distillers and John Powers to form the Irish Distillers Group. The New Midleton Distillery built by Irish Distillers produces most of the Irish whiskey sold in Ireland. In 1988 the Jameson brand was acquired by the French drinks conglomerate Pernod Ricard when it bought Irish Distillers.

Originally one of the six main Dublin Whiskeys, Jameson is now distilled in Cork. The old Jameson Distillery now serves as a museum.
