1. Irish Apple Tart Filling

Begin by melting butter in a pan over medium heat. Add apple wedges along with demerara sugar and a cinnamon stick, allowing them to cook until the apples are tender and caramelized. Finish by adding 100ml of Jameson Black Barrel, letting the flavours meld together beautifully. Pro tip: to ensure your tart crust remains crisp, drain any excess juice from the apple mixture after cooking. This step keeps your tart perfectly textured and bursting with flavour.


2. Marmalade & Whiskey Bread Pudding

Start by combining cream, vanilla, and sugar with a splash of Jameson Original to elevate the pudding with its rich, smooth notes. Layer slices of bread with orange marmalade in a baking dish, then pour the whiskey-infused cream mixture over the top. Allow the bread to soak up the flavours before baking until golden and set. Variation tip: Get creative with your bread choices! Experiment with different types like Scottish fruit loaf to add a unique twist and enhance the depth of flavours in your bread pudding.

3. Whiskey Glaze

Begin by simmering brown sugar, minced garlic and soy sauce in a saucepan until they meld into a thick, flavourful glaze. For a truly distinct taste, we recommend adding 50ml of Jameson Black Barrel post-reduction. This timing ensures the whiskey’s rich notes remain pronounced. To prevent burning, apply the glaze to grilled meats and vegetables toward the end of cooking. This method enhances your dishes with a perfectly caramelized finish without compromising flavour.

4. Whiskey Cream Sauce

Start by sautéing finely chopped onions in a pan until they are soft and translucent. Stir in a generous spoonful of mustard, followed by heavy cream. Allow the mixture to simmer gently until it thickens. Finish by adding 30ml of Jameson Original, stirring it in to create a rich sauce. This sauce pairs beautifully with steaks and seafood, enhancing their natural flavours and adding a touch of sophistication to your dish.

5. Caramel & Whiskey Sauce

Begin by melting sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until it forms a smooth, amber-coloured caramel. Carefully add butter and heavy cream, whisking until the mixture is well combined and silky. Finish by stirring in 40ml of Jameson Black Barrel to add depth and enjoy the perfect balance of sweet caramel and the whiskey’s smooth finish. Drizzle this decadent Whiskey Caramel sauce over ice cream or your favourite desserts. It pairs exceptionally well with vanilla flavours, enhancing them with a sophisticated, whiskey-infused twist.

6. Whiskey Ice Cream

Get ready to give your classic ice cream a bold, innovative twist by adding Jameson Black Barrel. It’s time to dust off your ice cream maker and create a treat that combines creamy sweetness with the smooth, warm notes of Jameson. For the best flavor, we recommend adding the Jameson towards the end of the mixing process. This ensures that the whiskey’s rich and full character is perfectly preserved and infused into your ice cream. We suggest serving your whiskey ice cream with a variety of delicious toppings such as drizzle of salted caramel sauce, fresh fruit slices, or a touch of honey.
