Jameson Experience in County Cork
From $20.86
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
The Jameson Experience in Ireland’s County Cork offers a true taste of Irish history. On this hour-long guided tour of the old Midleton distillery, you’ll learn about the distillation process, visit a restored 19th-century warehouse where Jameson is aged in oak casks and even have an opportunity to sample some of the finished product. Your experience begins with a short video detailing the history of Jameson, the world’s best-selling Irish whiskey.
What to Expect
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.

The experience was really good, I went with my father who do not speak english fluency as me, and both conclude that guides runs along the tour. Apart from that, it is an amazing factory!

Well done tour through the old distillery site. Guides were knowledgable and the Behind the Scenes tour was worth the cost of admission. Multiple tastings of whiskey throughout the tour.

I'm not 100% sure but I believe Cork is an active distillery whereas the Dublin is not.
