Jameson is a Single Distillery Irish Whiskey from French drinks conglomerate Pernod Ricard. Unlike other blends where several whiskeys from either other distilleries or the open market are combined together to reduce costs, the Jameson Distilling tradition has always insisted upon producing every component of their whiskey as they say "from grain to glass." 

Jameson is similar in its adherence to the single distillery principle to the Single Malt tradition however Jameson has always used a combination of malted and unmalted or "green" barley. The most famous component within Jameson is the legendary "Pure Pot Still" component unique to the Irish whiskey distilling since the origins of whiskey in Ireland in around 600 A.D. John Jameson established the Bow St Distillery in 1780. 

Originally one of the six main Dublin Whiskeys, Jameson it is now distilled in Cork, although vatting still takes place in Dublin. With annual sales of over 31 million bottles, Jameson is by far the most famous, most highly regarded and best selling Irish whiskey in the world, as it has been internationally since the early 1800's when Old John Jameson along with his son Young John was producing over a million gallons annually.

The Old Jameson Distillary is a very informative tour and a must see visit for anyone vacationing in Ireland and looking for things to do in Dublin to experience a bit of 220 year old history.
