Description:

Welcome, back! Since John Jameson's brave first steps into this building in...

Welcome, back! Since John Jameson's brave first steps into this building in 1780, we've been focused on his ambition to create unforgettable experiences (along with great whiskey, of course). The new look Jameson Distillery Bow St. carries on this ambition through three fully guided experiences: Bow St. Experience, The Whiskey Makers, and The Whiskey Shakers - all of which have a firm focus on immersive storytelling. You'll be invited to touch, smell, and most importantly, taste Jameson in the original Bow St. Distillery buildings. An exciting part of our Whiskey Makers & Whiskey Shakers experiences is a visit to our live Maturation Warehouse, where you'll get to taste Jameson straight from the barrel. The only way to get closer to the source would be to have John Jameson guide you through the distillery himself. We are open again in March 2017!

Visiting the old distillery was a great history lesson on Jameson. I highly recommend purchasing the bottle of Jameson that you fill from the special cask. It was a great experience learning about the brewing process for Jameson and the history of the company. The guided tour was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it.

Worth a visit! Informative and you get a free drink too. We went in a group of 4 girls on a weekend away and booked in advance. Easy enough to walk to from in the city centre.

There is also a great tour around showing you how the whiskey is made and what happens at the different stations. There is also a great cafe in the grounds with wonderful... More

Tasted some even though not my drink of choice. My friend took on the 'tasting challenge ' and received a special certificate. Overall a lovely day out on a wet day in... More

A nice walk around to see how whiskey is made and learning a bit about the history of Jameson. If you are lucky you will get the tasting platter to compare different whiskey to see the difference
