Jameson Irish Whiskey The Distiller's Safe 750ml
$114.99 price per bottle
Named after the instrument that allows Brian to fine tune a whiskey’s style, The Distiller’s Safe is relatively unaffected by the influence of oak. One sip speaks volumes about the beautiful complexity created by a pot still. Endowed with a smooth mouth feel, The Distiller’s Safe carries distinct sweetness from Barley Sugar and gentle notes of apricot, cinnamon and melon. Lighter than whiskey that’s been heavily influenced by oak, its finish is luminous and zesty. Long before barrels make their mark, a pot still has the first say. The Distiller’s Safe is a fitting testament to the iconic Irish Pot Still, and the craft required to master it. Wine maker notes The Whiskey Makers Series is a celebration of craft and crafters. This is a tribute to the dedication of the masterful craftsmen at Midleton Distillery where thet wanted to create a whiskey that reflected their passion for their individual trades. The ultimate collaborative effort resulted in three great tasting whiskeys, made by our Head Distiller, our Head Cooper and our Head Blender, collectively known as the makers. Distillers are the purists of whiskey making, and our Head Distiller, Brian Nation, fits that description to a tee. Having spent many years learning the finer points of the pot still, he is enthralled by what emerges from within the copper. The Distiller’s Safe is a tribute to the Irish pot still and reveals the true character of the distillate. In general, oak’s influence looms large over most Irish whiskey, but in order to showcase the craft of a distiller, Brian decided he needed to let the distillate take centre stage.
