    What to Expect
    Visit: Jameson Distillery Midleton, Distillery Walk, Midleton Ireland

    Make your own way to the old Midleton Distillery, which is located in Midleton, around a 15-minute drive from the city of Cork. 

    Begin by watching an informative video that will introduce you to the story of Jameson. The long-standing brand has been producing Irish whiskey for more than 230 years.

    After getting up to speed on the history of Jameson, talk a walk through the old distillery in the company of an expert guide. Some of the buildings here date back as far as the late 18th century and although the distillery is no longer functioning, much of the equipment and features have been carefully preserved and restored.

    As you walk through the historical buildings, see old kilns, mills and distilling equipment, including the largest pot still in the world. Enter a 19th-century warehouse, which has been carefully restored with original features and now stores casks full of aging whiskey. Learn about the artisan craft of building whiskey barrels through a cooperage exhibit in the warehouse.

    Finish up in the Jameson Bar, where a select few participants will get to take part in a comparative tasting. They’ll learn how to distinguish Jameson from different types of whiskey. Everyone in the tour can then savor a complimentary glass of Jameson or a Jameson-based cocktail.

    The tour concludes here in the bar, where you can indulge in more whiskey tastings (own expense). Alternatively, browse the gift store, which stocks exclusive Jameson merchandise.

    Jamison distillery in Cork is a must see stop. We had such a great time and it is full of information on the brewing process of Jamison whiskey. The staff there is extremely knowledgeable and the grounds are in beautiful shape. We did not let the rain become a deterrent to us!
