Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard - The spirit we share
Jameson 12 Year Old Special Reserve

Jameson 12 Year Old Special Reserve, with its robust full bodied flavour, is a warm welcoming handshake into the Reserves whiskey family. A whiskey of great character with complex flavours of toasted wood, spice and sherry that are superbly mellowed. Its exquisite taste celebrates the enduring heritage of great Jameson whiskeys which began in 1780.

Jameson 18 Year Old Limited Reserve

Jameson 18 Year Old Limited Edition is an exceptionally balanced whiskey. Its wonderfully mellow complex taste and lingering finale of wood, spice and toffee have been deftly created by the Master Blender.

His handpicked selection of no fewer than 3 exquisitely poised whiskeys, are the light, shade and foreground used to craft this unique blend. Dutifully matured for no less than 18 years in a combination of bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks and finished in first fill American bourbon barrels, this is a masterful whiskey of great fluency with a rich, smooth taste.

Jameson

Jameson is the No. 1 selling Irish whiskey in the world, a consistent award winner and is amongst the elite of the fastest growing international spirit brands in the world.

Jameson stands apart from other whiskey because of its exceptionally smooth taste and unique Irish attitude. Jameson has all the credentials of a premium Irish whiskey brand, but doesn't take itself too seriously.

Jameson Gold Reserve

Jameson Gold Reserve is a creative blend of 3 whiskeys of advanced years, 1 of which is uniquely matured in virgin oak barrels. It is the inspired choice of this virgin oak, coupled with the bourbon barrels and sherry casks that account for the whiskey's satisfying complexity and honey toasted sweetness. It is a marvellously rich pot still character whiskey.

Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve

This initial expression of maturing rare pot still whiskey in traditional fortified wine casks is a triumph of the collaboration between the Jameson Masters; devotees to their craft whose skill and artistry have been richly rewarded.

All the whiskeys in this magnificent Reserve are of an advanced age and have an immense collage of flavours to impart from their time in the wood.

Jameson Select Reserve

Great whiskeys don’t just happen by chance. Years of experience and consummate skill go into the precise selection of whiskeys used in Jameson Select Reserve.

The rare, sweet grain whiskey - not found in any other Jameson Whiskey - is triple distilled in small batch quantities on just one occasion each year. The result is an extremely rich and luxurious taste experience, combining spice and exotic fruits. We think you will agree it is a selection well made.

Jameson Signature Reserve

Long before distilleries began bottling their own whiskey, Jameson insisted that their own labels, each bearing the John Jameson & Son signature, accompany every delivery of casks to the whiskey bonders.

Jameson Signature Reserve celebrates this fine tradition, with its high pot still content and a significant taste contribution from oloroso sherry casks. Aged in the best quality American bourbon barrels and Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, this is a whiskey as sophisticated as it is well-balanced. Jameson Signature Reserve is only available in Travel Retail outlets.

Powers

Powers is regarded as the classic and quintessential Irish whiskey. Powers offers a rich, round, complex and full flavoured drinking experience due to its characteristic pot still influence and maturation in oak barrels.

Powers Signature Release

The Powers Signature Release expression bears the hallmark spicy flavors that are typical of the Powers whiskeys, with black pepper, honey, vanilla and berries in abundance.

Using the signature Powers pot still distillate, it has been matured mainly in American bourbon barrels with the subtle inclusion of whiskey, matured in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks.

Powers John's Lane Release

This first expression of a Powers Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey celebrates the origin of the Powers whiskey tradition by providing a glimpse of the whiskey style that made Powers famous.

Using a Pot Still distillate which is true to the original style of John's Lane, the whiskey has been matured for at least 12 years. The result is a Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey of outstanding flavour and complexity, which provides a perfect tribute to the spiritual home of one of Ireland's most loved whiskeys.

New Paddy

Paddy is one of Ireland's legendary spirit brands and dates back to the 18th Century. Paddy is an exceptionally mellow whiskey, distinguished by the generous proportion of single malt in its blend.

Redbreast 12 Year Old

One of the most decorated Irish whiskeys, Redbreast is the largest selling Single Pot Still Irish whiskey in the world and is regarded as the definitive expression of traditional Pot Still whiskey.

Full of aroma and flavour, Redbreast 12 Year Old benefits from a strong contribution from distillates which have matured in Oloroso sherry casks, giving it its trademark Christmas cake character.

Redbreast 12 Cask Strength

Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in copper pot stills, Redbreast 12 Cask Strength displays the characteristic full and complex flavour of pot still whiskey.

Redbreast 15 Year Old

Bottled at the higher ABV strength of 46%, Redbreast 15 Year Old is non chill filtered.

It is made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, triple distilled in Copper Pot Stills, and, finally, matured in a combination of American bourbon barrels and first fill Spanish Oloroso sherry casks.

Midleton Very Rare

The very first Midleton Very Rare, 1984, was created by Master Distiller Barry Crockett from some of the very finest whiskeys originally laid down by his father and Master Distiller, Max Crockett.

Over 25 years later, Barry, his son and successor continues the noble task of hand-picking no more than 250 precious casks of rare whiskeys from which to create this truly magnificent and much celebrated whiskey.

Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy

Bearing the name of the celebrated second generation Midleton Master Distiller, Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy represents a selection of pot still whiskeys which have been matured exclusively in American bourbon barrels with a subtle contribution from a pot still distillate which has matured in an unseasoned American barrel.

The whiskey has matured in a combination of new bourbon and refill bourbon casks as well as sherry casks. Only small quantities of Green Spot are bottled each year making it a rare and much sought after delight.

Irish Whiskey

The Irish Whiskey Revolution

Silence, they say, never makes mistakes. At Irish Distillers we'd have to agree. Because at the Midleton Distillery, in the warehouse, among the old port pipes, the sherry butts and bourbon barrels, where silence reigns, that's where the magic happens. It's the kind of magic that has helped us create our superior portfolio of Irish whiskey today.

The appeal and interest in Irish whiskey, forged mainly by the global success of Jameson, has meant that there is a groundswell of new demand for different types of whiskeys, particularly the traditional pot still whiskeys which once wowed the world.

Pot still Irish whiskey is a style of whiskey which is unique to Ireland in general and to the Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork, in particular. It is regarded as the quintessential style of Irish whiskey.

We are also very excited to be launching the Midleton Distillery – Irish Whiskey Academy in 2013. This will be a comprehensive destination for education on how Irish whiskeys are crafted at Midleton Distillery with detail on all the individual brands produced there including Jameson, Powers, Paddy, Redbreast, Midleton and the Spot Whiskeys Range.
