Jameson and the Undergraduate of the Year for Innovation Award

The story of Jameson is one best told in the company of friends, so pull up a stool and we'll do our best to keep it short.

Everything you need to know is right there on our bottle. In 1780, John Jameson founded the Bow Street Distillery in Dublin and since then our story, like our whiskey, has travelled across many borders and been translated into many languages. Despite this, our Irish accent has never changed, and our family motto still remains on every bottle. 'Sine Metu', translated as 'without fear' sums up the adventurous and fearless spirit of the world’s best-selling Irish Whiskey.
