Jameson marks St Patrick’s Day with prize that offers cold comfort

To celebrate St Patrick’s Day (17 March), Jameson Irish whiskey gave a group of friends a trip of a lifetime with an expedition to Norway.

The group travelled to the most northerly inhabited area on the globe, Svalbard in Norway, which was marked by the coordinates 17° longitude 80° latitude – a tribute to 1780, the year John Jameson set up his distillery in Dublin, Ireland.

Once they reached their destination, the group raised a glass of the Pernod Ricard-owned whiskey and toasted St Patrick’s Day.

The friends, from Ireland, India and Argentina, trekked over frozen terrain and took part in snowmobile races, husky rides and ice-­cave climbing.
