Jameson 1780

Av Patrick Costello
The Jameson company was established in 1780 when John Jameson established the Bow Street Distillery in Dublin.
By the turn of the 19th century, it was the second largest producer in Ireland and one of the largest in the world, producing 1,000,000 gallons annually. Dublin at the time was the centre of world whiskey production. By 1805 Jameson had become the world’s number one whiskey. Today, it is the world’s third largest single-distillery whiskey.
