Jameson Cooper's Croze Whiskey
- Irish Whiskey
- Ireland, 700ml
A subtle flower petal-perfume develops into rich ripe fruits, while some charred oak and cedar wood bring balance and complexity. This brings added depth to the rich fruits typical of the ex-oloroso sherry butts. A pleasant touch of hazelnut and toasted wood complement the pot still spices. Pleasantly long, with vanilla sweetness slowly fading to barley grains with a touch of oak char.

One of a trio of award winning whiskeys released by Jameson as part of their Whiskey Makers Series - this one has been named in honour of Ger Buckley, Jameson's Head (or Master) Cooper! Ger has unsurprisingly concentrated on different cask influences; using single pot still whiskey from both first fill and second fill bourbon casks as well as Sherry casks, whilst the grain component was matured in virgin American oak. Fun fact - The Croze is a tool used to cut the grooves for the heads of the cask.
The best selling Irish whiskey in the world, Jameson is produced at Midleton distillery in Cork. This famous blend is made with Irish single pot still and grain whiskeys, with tasty variants such as Black Barrel and an 18 year old available.
The Jameson story began back in 1780 when Scottish businessman John Jameson purchased the Bow Street Distillery in Dublin. It wasn't long before his chief brand, Jameson Irish Whiskey, would become internationally popular. The Bow Street distillery was previously producing around 30,000 gallons annually but by the turn of the nineteenth century the distillery was producing over a million gallons. John Jameson was keen to produce the best product possible, sourcing the finest ingredients. Furthermore, John triple distilled his product when most others were double distilled; he believed this produced a smoother product. During the early nineteenth century, John Jameson’s son, John II, expanded the facilities which were, by this time, among the largest in Ireland. John II’s son John III further expanded the brand and when his son John IV came to power at the helm of the Jameson brand, he found himself in charge of a global brand.
