In 2018 the Midleton Distillery team has kicked off St. Patrick’s Day with its seventh annual limited edition bottle design.
For the first time in history Jameson has collaborated with a group of artists representing unity and opportunities that are possible when friends come together. Claudine O’Sullivan, Irish illustrator, lead the designing process, engaging two close friends – British designer Alex Mellon and Irish photographer Leonn Ward – to curate the label. The result being a design that celebrates the openness and spirit of friendship that Ireland is renowned for. The 2018 collectible bottle is inspired by the Fianna, Irish mythological warriors known for valuing loyalty and bravery – the foundation of every friendship. Claudine’s drawing of soaring eagle represents the unity felt by the silhouette of three friends on a night out, shot against Dublin’s Ha’penny Bridge by Leonn. The three friends on the label are depicted rallying around banners and symbols representing Irish tribes of past and present drawn by Alex and are set to inspire whiskey drinkers around the world to come together and celebrate St. Patrick’s day with a dram of Jameson.
