Hugely popular Irish blend, renowned for its affinity with ginger ale. The default springboard into the fascinating world of Irish whiskey, Jameson's quality has improved massively in the last 10-15 years and it's one of Jim Murray's favourites, with 95 points in the Whisky Bible 2013.

Few things are as Irish as Jameson whiskey, which is surprising since the brand was established by John Jameson, a Scotsman himself. It was in 1774 that John Jameson arrived in Dublin, Ireland, and a few years later he was appointed distillery manager at one of the distilleries in the region. He would later inherit the distillery, which belonged to one of his relatives by marriage, and a glorious Irish journey would commence.
