Currently, the small distillery on Bow Street has been transformed into a visitor’s center that reveals the making process of one of Ireland’s most famous whiskey brands.
History of whiskey
The tour starts off with an introductory video, followed by a guided tour of the installations, where you’ll learn about the making of this uniquely blended whiskey. A guide will walk you through the various areas where the barley and grain are malted, then mashed, fermented, distilled and matured.
When you’ve learnt the whiskey process making, you’ll finish the guided tour with a whiskey tasting. If you’re a big fan, you can taste various whiskeys and compare them to Jameson whiskey. Otherwise, you can have a whiskey tasting accompanied by Coca-Cola or with cranberry juice.
