John Jameson founded his factory in 1780,being the pioneer of the business. At that time, no one recognized the glory of the world's beverage as a whiskey - for example, Ukrainian moonshine or sirloin is now valued in much the same way as then - Irish.
"This is a national" swill ", and no one willbuy it for export! "- John said, but he did not obey, his merits are a painstaking study of mill drawings and cooperations (making barrels for alcohol aging) .He traveled a lot of countries of the world before releasing the first famous bottle from the assembly line (its design practically has not changed since that time.) And now the Jameson whiskey inherits the hidden technology of triple distillation, drying malt grains in closed furnaces and holding the drink to ten years in oak barrels .The result is a nut-vanilla soft smack without haze and jes Elegant and barely perceptible aroma, rich golden color, variety of varieties: the brand has both classical and 12-year-old, and even 18-year-old whiskey.
