The whiskey makers at Midleton Distillery are proud to present The Jameson Anthology, a
curated collection of unique limited-edition Irish whiskeys which draw inspiration from the
past as well as imagining new possibilities. Jameson Remastered, the first volume within
The Jameson Anthology, celebrates the spirit of classic discontinued whiskeys, by
reinventing them with modern techniques to deliver a new taste experience. The soon to be
released second volume, Jameson Remixed, meanwhile will explore and experiment with
new tunes from Jameson for an altogether different take on the classic Irish icon.


Jameson 15 Year Old Single Pot Still, the first release within the Jameson Remastered
Volume, is a reinvention of a much loved classic which was last produced in 2000 as a
limited edition offering. This award-winning 1 liquid is composed of three exceptional whiskey
styles, spanning 15 to 17 years of maturation in carefully selected American bourbon barrels
and Oloroso sherry butts. This single pot still whiskey raises a glass to history by featuring a
significant contribution of sherry casks, paying tribute to traditional whiskey making in Bow
Street Distillery.


Kevin O’Gorman, Master Distiller, takes guardianship of the new release in which he
masterfully combined the original distilling methods with modern-day techniques. Whilst
retaining a clear reference to Jameson’s unmistakably smooth DNA, the sherry casks bring
together rich and fruity notes, paying homage to Ireland’s history, heritage and craftmanship
whilst staying true to the original and remaining in tune with today.

The distinctive packaging of Jameson 15 Year Old Single Pot Still is set to appeal to the
nostalgia of Jameson fans across the globe, taking them on a journey from past to present.
The bottle is wrapped in newspaper, with one side uncovering Jameson’s heritage and the
other marking the present day and comes in recyclable honeycomb cardboard packaging.

It’s been more than two decades since the
last Jameson 15 Year Old was created and it has been a great opportunity to remaster this
classic whiskey.
For this limited-edition bottling, we seized the opportunity to combine the traditional single
pot still style with the strong influence of the sherry casks, which was integral to historic
whiskey production. We’re confident to have developed a contemporary iteration of Jameson
15 Year Old that pays tribute to the torch bearers who put Irish whiskey on the map, whilst
nodding to the current generation of talented craftspeople at Midleton Distillery. We can’t
wait for Jameson fans to sip, savour and enjoy it to the very last drop.

Master Distillery, Kevin O’Gorman

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with the
team to bring Jameson fans a new 15 Year Old that has been remastered for the modern
day. The inclusion of the sherry casks creates incredibly rich flavours and an extra-long
fusion of fruits and spices, in line with traditional pot still flavours that are known and loved.
We’re looking forward to continuing to delight fans with more to come within The Jameson
Anthology, which we hope will be music to whiskey fans’ ears.

Tasting notes by Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman:

Nose: Rich nutty tones, dark berries and ripe orchard fruits mixed with sweet woodland
spices. Underlying hints of oak combined with dried herbs and traditional pot still flavours, all
wonderfully balanced and complex.

Taste: Robust and spicy with the pot still influences to the fore accompanied by the oak’s
tannins alongside silky, textured layers of sweet dairy fudge and vanilla. Soft fruit notes of
cherry are intertwined with fig and plum.

Finish: A rich and lasting finish with the duo of fruit and spices lingering before the toasted
oak’s drying tannins have the last word.
