Full description
Set on 15 acres of lovely grounds, the Jameson Experience is both an education and a cultural experience as soon as you step through its doors. You will discover the largest pot still in the world, the Angels Share and of course, the finest of Irish whiskeys.

Day time tours operate 7 days all year round, except selected dates at Christmas. The journey begins with an audiovisual presentation, followed by a guided tour through the original distillery, and culminates in the Jameson Bar with a complimentary glass of Jameson, a 3-part comparison whiskey tasting, and the chance to become a "Qualified Irish Whiskey Taster."

Located just 15 minutes drive from Cork on the N25 Cork to Waterford road, tours usually last approximately 1-hour, but you can make a day of it and have a delicious lunch in the Malt House Restaurant, or browse the Distillery gift shop, where you will find exclusive Jameson gifts or a special memento of your visit.

A great gift to take home is the Jameson Distillery Edition, a superb whiskey exclusively for sale at Midleton. Make it even more special by having your bottle personalized as a great gift or memento of your visit.
