Jameson Irish Whiskey (Dublin, Ireland) recently announced that it has officially expanded its Caskmates lineup with the release of Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition.
To create Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition, the distillers at Jameson begin by sending “propriety oak whiskey barrels” from their Midleton distillery to a local Irish brewery so that it may fill them with a “local craft IPA.” Once the barrels are infused with the “crisp citrus notes” of that India Pale Ale, they are then “sent back to Jameson to be reused to finish Jameson Original.” After spending a lengthy time aging in the IPA-soaked barrels, a 40% ABV (80 proof) Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition emerges with that familiar “smooth taste of Jameson” but with added “light hints of hops, fresh citrus and floral notes.” Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition now joins Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition to comprise the distillery’s portfolio of Caskmates offerings.
“Quality and taste have always been our reason to be,” said Sebastien Borda, Brand Director Jameson Irish Whiskey, Pernod Ricard USA. “Jameson Caskmates IPA was born from the dedication of the whiskey making tradition that John Jameson established in 1780, combined with a relentless pursuit of original and innovative expressions for our whiskeys. Jameson Caskmates IPA brings the crisp, hoppy notes that characterizes IPA beer together with the triple-distilled smoothness of Jameson to create a one-of-a-kind and exceptional tasting whiskey.”
Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition is available now in 750ml bottles for the suggested retail price of $29.99 each. You can find this latest Caskmates release at fine establishments throughout the U.S. that normally carry offerings from Jameson Irish Whiskey. Prost!
