Irish Distillers was formed in 1966 following the merger of three of the great Irish Whiskey distillers, namely John Jameson & Sons, established in Dublin in 1780; Powers & Sons, who were founded in Dublin in 1791 and the Cork Distillery whose origins date back to 1825. Though steeped in history, around the time of the merger the future of the Irish Whiskey industry was under doubt. To survive and hopefully prosper, the newly formed company decided there was nothing for it but to close its existing distilleries in Cork and Dublin and consolidate production in a new, purpose-built facility located alongside the site of the old distillery in Midleton, Cork. The relocation eventually heralded in an era of success and growth that continues to this day. In time it also gave the original and historic Jameson and Midleton distilleries a new and exciting lease of life. John Jameson founded his whiskey distillery in Dublin in the year 1780. All the craft of the centuries-old tradition of making Irish whiskey is used to produce Jameson. From the rich countryside of Ireland come nature's finest barley and crystal clear water. These natural ingredients are carefully distilled 3 times, and slowly matured for long years in oak casks to create the natural, smooth whiskey that is Jameson. From a triple distillation, the whiskey in the composition of Green Spot are all aged 7 to 10 years. They come from aging in bourbon barrels and sherry casks. In addition to the use of unmalted barley, the hallmark of pure pot still, this popular Irish whiskey connoisseurs is distinguished by the presence of a high percentage of sherry casks.
