Blended Irish Whiskeys
In 1878, Dublin
distillers John Jameson, William Jameson, George Roe and John Power joined
forces to campaign for a strict legal definition of whiskey, a definition that
would exclude anything that poured from a Coffey still. It was a style of
whiskey that could be mixed with malt or pot still whiskey to make it lighter
and more approachable. Most of all, it could be produced a lot faster… and cheaper.
The Dublin distillers
weren’t successful and about 100 years later blended whiskey represented the
vast majority whiskey being bottled on the island of Ireland. Thankfully, Irish malt
and pot still is something that blends very well – witness the popularity of
the nation’s largest selling whiskey, Jameson.
