It's obviously something that they don't want to advertise or acknowledge.

He would have been third generation here but is buried in Scotland too to my knowledge.(Which has been questionable of late....too many private tastings)

DavidH wrote:No account I've seen puts old man Jameson even setting foot in Dublin as early as 1780 and certainly not owning the Smithfield distillery outright for another couple of decades after that. The name "John Jameson & Son" appeared in 1810, according to McGuire. I don't think we have got to the bottom of the significance of the year 1780 yet.
now i feel a bit bad for starting all this...
we all know IDL backdated Bushmills
but now we just shine the lights on Jameson
i am going to bed...

Another interesting one for research me thinks ... don't even think it got on Brian Townsand's The Lost Distilleries of Ireland
Anyway the banter is half the fun of these discussions
