Irish Distillers, producer of the world’s most well-known and successful Irish whiskeys, has unveiled Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition in Cyprus, a new extension to the innovative Caskmates range of whiskeys finished in beer-seasoned barrels.
Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition is the next chapter of a story that began in 2013 when Brian Nation, Master Distiller in Midleton Distillery, and Dave Quinn, Master of Whiskey Science, met Franciscan Well Founder and Head Brewer, Shane Long, in a local Cork bar. The Midleton masters agreed to loan some Jameson casks to the brewery to discover their influence on Irish stout and when the stout-seasoned barrels were returned to Midleton Distillery, Dave Quinn re-filled them with Jameson Irish whiskey – a finishing process that created Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition.
Having previously hit it off with stout, the Midleton team were curious to try a new beer buddy, and after much exploration discovered that a zesty IPA from Eight Degrees Brewing was the perfect partner for Jameson’s smooth character. With the creation of Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition the Midleton Masters have developed the ideal whiskey for pairing with craft ales.
Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition is a triple-distilled Irish whiskey finished in IPA-seasoned barrels from craft brewery, Eight Degrees Brewing, which is known for its adventurous approach to making beer using only natural ingredients. The result is a whiskey that features the signature smoothness of Jameson alongside hints of light hops, fresh citrus and floral notes. Bottled at 40% ABV, Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition is now available through leading bars and restaurants and/or specialist retailers in Cyprus.
Tempo Beverages Cyprus is the official representative and importer of Jameson, as well as all Pernod Ricard brands in Cyprus.
