Diving deep into Irish whiskey


    WHISKEY is among the all-time favorite spirits that have been consumed through the ages. However, not all whiskeys are made equal and different countries have different styles, giving consumers a dizzying array of choices that they could explore.

    Irish whiskey is considered to be the oldest commercially available whiskey, with its history tracing back as far as the early 1600’s.

    Today, Jameson Irish Whiskey is one of most-consumed whiskey brands. Jameson Irish Whiskey’s claim to fame lies in its distinct triple distillation process that separates it from other whiskeys. The triple distillation leaves the whiskey with a remarkably smooth finish.

    And while it makes for an easy-to-drink liquor, getting to know the history of the drink as well as how it is made makes for a more enjoyable drinking experience.

    So Jameson is now offering its very own online tasting class, for whiskey fans to find out how it stands out from the rest. Starting October, Jameson will hold special online tasting classes, with participants receiving their own Jameson Tasting Experience box which includes a sample of Jameson Original Whiskey. In the sessions, Jameson brand ambassador Julien Rubio will take them through the tasting, allowing them to discover for themselves the real difference an Irish Triple Distilled Whiskey can bring.“We truly believe that Jameson Irish Whiskey stands out from the pack with its smooth and distinct taste, and we can’t wait to show Filipinos what they may have been missing out on,” said Frances Favila, Jameson brand manager.

    “With a rewarding whiskey experience awaiting them, these sessions are sure to be a whole lot of craic—fun—for everyone involved.”Interested participants may register for an online raffle on the Jameson website, and a number of lucky winners will earn a slot in the session.

    Jameson is available in the Philippines in three variants: Jameson Original, its most popular bottle; Jameson Black Barrel, aged in double charred bourbon barrels, revealing the richness and intensity of toasted wood and vanilla; and Jameson 18, aged for 18 years and finished in first-fill bourbon casks, adding a unique complexity and elegance.
