Steve McCarthy | Jameson Limited Edition Bottle Designer

Our Limited Edition Bottles provides us with a platform to highlight and empower local talent. This year we were delighted to collaborate with the amazingly talented Dublin illustrator and designer Steve McCarthy.

His original bottle design was inspired by the Irish phrase “to chance your arm”, which roughly translates as taking a shot in the dark or a step outside your comfort zone. As Steve’s design suggests, Dublin loves a chancer — just ask John Jameson who left his comfort zone behind to set up a distillery here in 1780.

If you can’t be in Dublin this St. Patrick’s Day, get a taste of the city with the Jameson Limited Edition Bottle. Steve’s design is packed with symbols and observations that make Dublin, Dublin.

Watch Steve McCarthy talk through his inspiration for creating this year’s Limited Edition Bottle in the video below.
