Photographer's Note

Whilst on holiday in Dublin we went to Jameson's Whisky for a guided visit. We were told about how the spirit is produced with some interesting pictures etc., from the past.
Concluding with samples of the spirit at the end of the tour!

"John Jameson (1740-1823) was originally a lawyer from Alloa in Scotland before he founded his eponymous distillery in Dublin in 1780.
Previous to founding the distillery, he married Margaret Haig (1753-1815) in 1768. She was the eldest daughter of John Haig, the famous whiskey distillery in Scotland. John and Margaret had a family of 16 children, 8 sons and 8 daughters.
Some of his sons eventually followed him into the business.
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 million gallons a year.

Dublin at the time was the centre of world whisky production. The second most popular spirit in the world after rum.
Internationally Jameson had by 1805 become the world's number 1 whisky.
Today Jameson's is the world's largest single distillery whisky. It is now produced in County Cork and no longer in Dublin.

Two extra shots in the workshop from the interior.

Thanks for looking.
