Jameson Orange Debuts As Orange Flavored Irish Whiskey

By Allyson Nichols / August 22, 2021

Irish Distillers’ Jameson Irish Whiskey recently announced it is introducing a new flavored bottling to its range: Jameson Orange.

Inspired by the classic whiskey cocktail, Old Fashioned, Jameson Orange is said to combine the triple-distilled Jameson Irish Whiskey with natural orange flavoring. Bottled at 30% ABV, the new release introduces a whiskey-focused, modern, low-sugar twist to the growing flavored spirits category.

“The concept behind Jameson Orange was to create a product which would appeal to a growing audience of flavored spirits fans, that draws on the quality and integrity of our award-winning triple distilled Irish whiskey,” International Marketing Director at Irish Distillers Brendan Buckley said in a prepared statement. “Like Jameson Cold Brew and the forthcoming Jameson Lime & Ginger, Jameson Orange’s flavors are inspired by a classic whiskey cocktail, and we’re confident that this focus on taste and quality will appeal to a broad audience of whiskey fans, bartenders, and curious spirit drinkers.”
