J.JAMESON

  • On October 5th 1740, John Jameson was born. Somebody believes John Jameson was Irish, but he was Scottish.

  • The Jameson family motto is “Sine Metu” meaning “Without Fear”, awarded for their bravery in battling pirates on the high seas back in the 1500

  • Now, Ireland is reputed to be where whiskey was invented and whiskey from Dublin was regarded as the finest in the world.

  • In the late 18th century, most whiskeys were distilled twice, like it is in Scotland. John Jameson wasn’t, he went that extra step and insisted on triple distillation, as he found that it made his whiskey twice as smooth.

  • He tried to distil four or five times for a better taste but it turned out triple distillation is the best. He was a hardworking man, he spend all that time to the making of whiskey.

  • He was single-minded about quality; he actually set up a Single Distillery to make his whiskey. This simply means that everything from the selection of grain and cask, to triple distillation and maturation, takes places in the one Distillery to ensure total quality control.

  • When John Jameson a Scottish buisnessman acquired the Bow Street Distillery in 1780 it was producing about 30,000 gallons annually.

  • By the turn of the century it was the second largest producer in Ireland and one of the largest in the world producing a million gallons annually.

  • Dublin at the time was the epicentre of world whiskey production.Today Jameson is the third largest Single Distillery Whiskey in the world.

  • The temperance movement in Ireland had an enormous impact domestically but the two key events that affected Jameson internationally were the Irish war of Independence and subsequent trade war with the British which denied Jameson the export markets of the Commonwealth, and shortly thereafter, the introduction of prohibition in the United States.

  • It was also a fact that the introduction of basic grain whiskey production using column stills by the Scottish blenders in the mid 1800's enabled them to produce vast amounts of almost neutral flavoured components for blending with some malt whiskey.

  • This enabled them to create low cost blends that the Irish, still using the original Pure Pot Still technique could not compete with.This differing opinion of what a true whiskey consisted of culminated in a legal enquiry in 1908.

  • He stretched to select personally the barley and casks. John Jameson opened his distillery in Dublin in 1780. When John Jameson established his whiskey distillery in Dublin, he really began to make his mark.

  • From 1800, John started the tradition of giving all his workers nicknames. By 1810, John’s son, John II, had expanded the distillery to be one of the largest distilling companies in Ireland.

  • In the late 1800s his son, John III expanded the business globally to make it one of the largest whiskeys in the world.

  • However by the time his son, John IV, took over the distillery in the early 1900s, there wasn’t much for him to do at all except prove the old adage that good things come in threes.

  • Nowadays, Jameson produces the whisky at two distilleries the Bushmills distilleries and the modern Middleton complex near Cork.
