Jameson Whiskey is without a doubt one of the best Whiskey’s in the world. I went to Dublin two weeks ago and thought that I’d finally go visit the Distillery in Dublin and take a tour. After all the Distillery has been there since 1780 so it’s about time I saw what was up there and it did not disappoint that’s for sure.
One of my favourite things I’ve learned from this tour was learning how Jameson gets it’s smooth taste. The phrase “Triple-Distilled” appears prominently on any bottle of Jameson. Compared to some of it’s typically twice-distilled cousins in Scotland and the U.S., Jameson’s mellow smoothness comes from using that extra still in the process, which removes even more impurities from the spirit.
Jameson label’s shield symbol that reads, “SINE METU.” It means “without fear.” The Jameson family was granted the motto for their bravery battling pirates in the 1500s.
