A NEW TAKE ON A CLASSIC COMBINATION
That classic combination of Irish whiskey and coffee is enjoying an ice cool revival in the form of Jameson Cold Brew.
A first-of-its-kind tipple that infuses the world’s favourite Irish whiskey with natural cold brew coffee, Jameson Cold Brew launches in Ireland today to coincide with International Coffee Day, celebrated across the globe on 1st October.
Produced in Ireland, Jameson Cold Brew marries triple distilled Jameson Irish Whiskey with natural cold brew coffee derived from 100% Arabica beans from Brazil and Colombia. The result is a smooth and distinctive beverage with intense coffee aromatics, complemented by the vanilla nuttiness of Jameson, with notes of toasted oak and dark chocolate.
A refreshingly versatile brew, this unique whiskey can be enjoyed over ice, with tonic or cola, or in a Jameson Cold Brew-tini for a sophisticated take on the well-known Espresso Martini.
Set to appeal to whiskey lovers and coffee connoisseurs alike, Jameson Cold Brew is building on the incredible renaissance Irish whiskey is enjoying and tapping into Ireland’s craft coffee culture.
Dave Quinn, Head of Whiskey Science at Irish Distillers explains: “While coffee and Irish whiskey are no strangers in the glass, we wanted to modernise this iconic duo in a refreshing way which will appeal to curious whiskey drinkers and coffee aficionados looking for new flavours and experiences.
“We tested the concept with Irish and Australian consumers in summer 2018 and released the expression as a limited edition in the US in January this year. Following rave reviews, we’re delighted to welcome Jameson Cold Brew as a permanent member of the Jameson family. There’s no better country and no better Jameson fans to make it official with!”
Bottled at 30% ABV, Jameson Cold Brew is now available from €30.50 in retail outlets across Ireland.
