Ten times spirits and beer joined forces

Jameson Caskmates

Jameson Caskmates is one of the most prominent examples of a collaboration between spirits and beer producers.

The expression was first created in 2013 when Jameson teamed up with Irish microbrewery Franciscan Well, located in Cork, to see what effect used oak whiskey barrels from the Midleton distillery would have on stout beer.

Afterwards, the now stout-seasoned barrels were returned to the distillery and refilled with Jameson Original to create Jameson Caskmates, which is said to have the triple-distilled “smoothness” of Jameson with added notes of coffee, cocoa and hops.

In December 2017, the range expanded to include the Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition, an Irish whiskey finished in IPA beer barrels from Franciscan Well.
