John Jameson

Our People

Our fearless founding father

Our fearless founder stepped off a ship from his native Scotland to set up the Bow Street Distillery in Dublin in 1780.

Let’s get this out of the way. Ireland’s most famous whiskey was founded by a Scotsman. Having spent most of his life as a sheriff clerk, John Jameson arrived in Dublin as a middle-aged man. We’re not sure if we can put his decision down to a midlife crisis, but it was a big move for someone who had a well-established job at home.

When he set up shop, Bow Street wasn't the only distillery in this area. In fact, this part of Dublin was a whiskey making hotspot. The capital was booming at the turn of the 19th century and John Jameson wasn’t the only person trying to stake a claim.

PŘÍBĚH NAŠÍ VÝROBY

Jameson Irish Whiskey

Asi si dokážete představit, že výroba míchané irské whiskey, která chutná už více než dvě století, není zrovna jednoduchá. Ale nebojte se, více než 200 let odvahy, řemeslné zručnosti a společného smyslu pro chuť jsme vydestilovali do jednoho krátkého povídání. Takže tohle je tajemství naší charakteristické jemnosti – náš postup a naši lidé.
