To achieve outstanding smoothness, Jameson Irish Whiskey is distilled three times. We are distinct from American Whiskeys, which are typically produced only once, and Scotch whiskies, which are typically distilled twice. This tradition originated in 1780, when Great Master Distiller John Jameson discovered that his Jameson Irish Whiskey required three distillations. Jameson is the world's No. 1 Irish Whiskey, and it's not just a whisky from a single distillery. Jameson Irish Whiskey has a unique flavour. You can drink it neat, on the rocks, or in a long drink or cocktail. Jameson isn't simply a single distillery's whisky; it's the world's Number One Whiskey.
