Jameson's Short Shift Ft. Jess B

Where we invite our mates to tell us what they’ve been getting up to during iso and attempt to make their own signature Jamo cocktail.

Jess B is a rapper based in New Zealand and a huge fan of Jameson. So much so, she recently played at our Jameson ‘House of Rounds’ Stage at Laneway and killed it. We wanted to know what she is getting up to in isolation and challenged her to make a drink at her home in Auckland, which she has cleverly named the ‘Mess B’.

We also wanted to find out what she has been up to during lockdown as New Zealand slowly loosens their restrictions. Jess B has been keeping busy and getting creative throughout this period. Her advice: don’t put yourself under too much pressure.

She claims it has been a good chance to stop and slow down. She recently has built a mini recording studio at home giving her the chance to produce quality music whenever she feels inspired.

“Stay busy and creative whatever way I can …. without putting too much pressure on myself because this time has been super weird for everybody”

Jess B created the ‘Mess B’ with Jameson original, maple syrup, lemon juice and a pinch of cinnamon which you can recreate at home too.

While reflecting on this tough time, Jess B advises fellow creatives to take a minute to relax and not put too much pressure on yourself. Instead, she feels we should use this time to catch up with our friends, family and do more of the things we love. After all, we are in the midst of a global pandemic and to prioritise the important things in life.

“Keep going, I’ll see everybody on the other side cause we all gonna be going out strong”

But don’t worry, we’ve distilled over 200 years of courage, craft and a collective appreciation for taste, into one short account. So here’s the secret behind our signature smoothness – our process and our people.
