INTRODUCING JAMESON CASKMATES™ KELSO PALE ALE EDITION
THE TOAST OF IRELAND AND THE TASTE OF BROOKLYN BROUGHT TOGETHER FOR THIS EXCLUSIVE NEIGHBORHOOD OFFERING
Jameson Irish Whiskey’s passion for craft, quality and neighborhood collaboration continues with the release of this one-of-a-kind limited edition whiskey. Jameson Caskmates KelSo Pale Ale Edition was born from a collaboration between the world’s best selling Irish whiskey and Brooklyn microbrewer KelSo Beer Co.
“Back in 2014, Brooklyn micro brewer KelSo Beer Co. borrowed six of our Jameson barrels to age their India Pale Ale,” said Patrick Caulfield, Senior Brand Manager, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Pernod Ricard USA. “We thought it only right that we return the flavor and mature a special edition Jameson in the pale ale seasoned casks returned to us from the brewer. The result is a unique Neighborhood Edition Jameson Caskmates whiskey with the fresh IPA characteristics of zesty citrus, soft vanilla, hints of hops, pot still spices and sherry – a truly original finish.”
“The Caskmates concept, first imagined in a conversation in a neighborhood pub, is a product of shared passion for craft, quality and collaboration,” added Caulfield. “We’re very excited to unveil our newest collaboration, Jameson Caskmates KelSo Pale Ale in the neighborhood of our partner KelSo. This is the smallest release that Jameson has ever done in the U.S. Looking forward, we will continue to build such relationships with craft brewers throughout neighborhoods in both Ireland and the U.S.”
Jameson Caskmates is best enjoyed neat, on the rocks or paired with a KelSo IPA in order to truly appreciate the new, fresh flavors that the Pale Ale-finishing brings. The product will retail for a suggested price of $29.99, and is only available in New York for a limited time.
