Want to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but you've grown out of that whole green beer phase? Then it's the perfect time to give Jameson Irish Whiskey's a try, especially the spirit coming in this special edition 2013 St. Patrick's Day Bottle. Although the holiday has come and gone this year, we can still take some time to respect what they've dreamed-up with acclaimed glass engraver Dave Smith. Keeping with their ethos to always stay true to their roots, Jameson wanted to celebrate their traditional Irish heritage by pairing it with Smith's old world techniques to create a limited edition label. The result is a design that translates Smith's ornate gilding and etching skills into images reminiscent of the decor of old world Irish pubs' bar mirrors straight onto the bottle. After the jump, watch as pencil sketches turn into reverse prints and finally into etched emerald bottles finished with silver and gold leaf details. If you get your hands on one of these bottles you won't need it to be March 17th to embrace your inner Irish spirit.
