Not Just a Whiskey Bottle

Every St. Patrick’s Day, we commemorate our Irish heritage by collaborating with some of the finest artists and illustrators Ireland has to offer. Each year one artist’s design and name appears alongside John Jameson’s on the St. Patrick’s Day Limited Edition Bottle.

The Designer

This year, our bottle was designed by local artist Steve McCarthy, who merged historical and contemporary Dublin with his own unique style. Discover more about the man behind the bottle below.

The Inspiration

Steve’s work is often inspired by the playful use of words that the Irish are famous for. The design focuses on the origins of an Irish phrase, “chancing your arm”, which internationally translates as taking a shot in the dark or stepping out of your comfort zone.

Where You Can Buy It

Above all else, the 2017 Jameson St. Patrick’s Day Limited Edition Bottle was designed to be shared. So if you’re interested in sharing a glass or two this St. Patrick’s Day, visit our online store now.

Steve McCarthy's Story

If the story of John Jameson proves anything, it’s that Dublin rewards those who “chance their arm”. Local artist Steve McCarthy took inspiration from the origin of this phrase which created an expression that lives on to this day.
