Pernod Ricard's Irish Distillers unit is set to launch a limited edition Jameson bottle for St Patrick’s Day.

Jameson has teamed up with Irish artist Paul Daly to design the bottle, Irish Distillers said late last week. The launch will be supported by POS including engraved glassware and limited prints of the artwork, which was inspired by the Celtic illustrations in The Book of Kells, a decorated account of the four gospels, written around 800 AD.

The Irish whiskey brand will be the subject of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, which include the Jameson Global Radio Broadcasts taking place in the Old Jameson Distillery, Dublin and the Jameson St. Patrick’s Day Party, featuring dance group Groove Armada. Jameson will also broadcast online via its St. Patrick’s Day online radio station, JFM, on 17 March.

The bottle, limited to 12,000 nine-litre cases, will be available from mid-February in selected markets including the UK, Latvia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria and Travel Retail in Europe.
