‘Sine Metu’ (meaning Without Fear) was John Jameson’s guiding philosophy.
 
John Jameson founded Jameson Distillery in Dublin back in 1780. Since then Jameson became the most recognizable and sold Irish Whiskey in the world to this day. John Jameson was surprisingly a Scotsman but that didn’t stop him laying the foundation for the most famous Irish Whiskey. He used to enjoy sharing a drink and a story with his workers. And to this day you'll see two barrel men balanced on either side on the bottom of the label. These two men symbolize the generations of Jameson workers, who have labored with passion and commitment to produce Irish Whiskey.  
Produced in The Midleton distilleries situated in Midleton, Cork County, Jameson 18 year old has long been considered one of the brightest stars of the range. This blend of two pot still Whiskeys and a single grain is matured in Oloroso Sherry casks and finished in Bourbon wood for 6 months for a complex pot still character.
 
Trivia:
1) John Jameson used to enjoy sharing a drink and a story with his workers, so he also shared his label with them. And to this day you'll see two barrel men balanced on either side on the bottom of the label. These two men symbolize the generations of Jameson workers, who have labored with passion and commitment to produce this Irish Whiskey.
2) A shocker - John Jameson was a Scotsman.

Even after 18 years, the pot still refuses to be mastered by the wood. And that’s good, by the way.

Bought a bottle on my way home. The best drink I've ever had, and was able to enjoy it with a few of my brothers in arms. Haven't been able to find a bottle since.
