Newest Jameson Irish Whiskey Collaboration Unveiled
One of the most popular Irish Whiskey has collaborated with Eight Degrees Brewing for the second time, releasing an extremely limited whiskey.
Finished in Devil’s Ladder Belgian Tripel Barrels, according to Eight Degrees Brewing’s website. The relationship between Jameson and the brewery began in 2020 when Eight Degrees finished their Beligian Tripel craft beer in Jameson sherry casks. Eight Degrees named the beer Devil’s Ladder, after a popular hiking route in Ireland.
Jameson then turned around and selected a special whiskey to mature in the brewery’s beer-soaked barrels. After four months of maturation, the result is the highly anticipated Jameson Crested.
“We are delighted that in recent years our relationship and indeed proximity to Eight Degrees Brewing here in Cork has created a canvas for collaboration and experimentation in this space, both as part of the Jameson Caskmates Series and beyond.” Says the Jameson company of the collaboration.
