Jameson Distiller's safe 70cl 46%
‘As with everything we do at Midleton – the craft is the key.
It’s about getting to know those little tweaks, the different
cut points that can create different distillates, characters
and flavours. With this whiskey I got to decide what I
wanted to create. As a distiller, I wanted to showcase
the beauty and character of the distillates. My whiskey
has a smooth mouthfeel, typical of pot still whiskeys,
combined with the soft buttery sweetness and gentle
fruit notes of grain whiskey’
Brian Nation, Head Distiller
A pot-still-forward whiskey curated by Head
Distiller Brian Nation.
The Distiller’s Safe is a whiskey that celebrates the
craft of our Head Distiller, Brian Nation, and his
mastery of the Irish pot still. Delivering a smooth
mouthfeel and gentle notes of apricot, cinnamon
and melon, this whiskey pays respect to the
character of the distillate. Long before barrels and
Father Time weigh in, a pot still has the first say.
From floral perfume, through fresh herbs, to lively spices,
this special selection of distillates shows how the subtle
delicate sweet notes of Irish grain whiskey can complement
the more robust character of the Irish pot still whiskey.
Barley Sugar sweetness combines with the succulence
of grapefruit and green pepper, with a touch of marzipan
adding to the depth.
Starts off with barley sugar sweetness, progressing
to hints of cinnamon and even a touch of liquorice.
A vibrant note of mandarin orange appears alongside
the nuttiness of ground almond.
Stays light and zesty with Barley making a late appearance.
