Today, every drop of Jameson is produced in Midleton. It’s the place of whiskey-making dreams, where a real Irish welcome is waiting as you will be invited to take one of the memorable tours around amazing, heritage grounds. It is here that you will come face-to-face with the largest pot still in the world, you will see the new micro-distillery in action, experience live maturation warehouse and much more. Fully-guided experiences include the flagship Jameson Experience Tour, which brings you through the old distillery buildings, a Premium Whiskey Tasting, a Behind the Scenes tour where you can discover hidden gems behind closed doors, a Cask Opening Experience where you draw and taste whiskey straight from a cask and the Distiller’s Apprentice Tour where you learn about the whiskey process from grain to glass finishing with a visit to the working distillery. With five fully immersive experiences on offer, there is something for everyone who wishes to learn more about Ireland’s world-famous spirit.
Also available in Jameson Distillery Midleton is The Malthouse Restaurant. All ingredients (just like the whiskey) come from down the road. Included in the menu are traditional hot dishes, made with a modern twist, and served daily from 12-3pm. If you’re in search of just a coffee and a snack, you’re warmly welcome to call in anytime between 10-4pm.
