You will like to know that…
Jameson, the best-selling Irish whiskey in the world was first established back in 1780. This is when John Jameson first began distilling Irish whiskey in Dublin, Ireland - the same location it remained until the 1970s, which production moved to a new distillery outside of Cork. While everyone has heard of Jameson Original, the company also has a wide range of whiskey expressions on offer.
The Whiskey Makers Series is a special collection of three masterful whiskies, crafted by three craftsmen, each of which plays a special role in the crafting of any Jameson product: the head distiller, the head cooper, and the head blender. Jameson's The Cooper's Croze is a celebration of the person in charge of one of the most essential parts of any whiskey: the barrel. The casks are what brings character to a whiskey, adding colour and flavour.
For that reason, The Cooper's Croze is a wood-forward expression of Jameson. Triple distilled and not chill filtered, the Head Cooper, Ger Buckley, chose a variety of types of wood to show off the importance of cask influences. First and second fill bourbon casks, sherry casks, and virgin American oak all have their piece to say in this finely crafted gem. Who better than a cooper to decide the woods used in such a spirit?
Description of Jameson The Cooper's Croze
Jameson The Cooper's Croze
- Colour: Jameson The Cooper's Croze has a warm straw gold hue.
- Aroma: A flower blossom and vanilla perfume grows into ripe, rich fruit, with some honeyed spice and charred oak character beautifully balancing the orchard sweetness.
- Taste: Baking spice, crème Brulé, fresh pear, pepper, raisin, and sweet vanilla, as smooth as can be, make this a truly luscious sipping whiskey.
PRODUCER: Jameson is produced at County Cork's New Midleton distillery, and is part of the Irish Distillers subsidiary owned by Pernod Ricard. Jameson is unquestionably the best-selling Irish whiskey brand on the planet.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: Each expression in Jameson's Whiskey Makers Series is intended to pay tribute to different Master Craftsmen of the whiskey-making process. Jameson The Cooper's Croze was developed by the company's fifth-generation Head Cooper, Ger Buckley, who named it for the tool that cuts the groove of a barrel for the securing of its head; he wished to honour the role that wood plays in crafting whiskey, working as he does to select, maintain, and repair the beloved casks of this distillery, like his fathers before him. Single pot still whiskey from first and second fill bourbon casks and Sherry casks is blended with grain whiskey matured in virgin American oak, to delectable effect.
Jameson is an Irish Blended Whiskey produced by Irish Distillers, the Irish subsidiary of Pernod Ricard. For over two hundred years, Jameson has given us the opportunity to enjoy the best whisky in Ireland, while preserving the experience of its origins in today's bottles.More about the Winery
