About

Take a journey to one of the top attractions in Cork and savour the remarkable story of the Jameson Distillery Midleton

The Jameson Distillery Midleton, located just 20 minutes drive from Cork City, is laid out over 15 acres with buildings dating back to 1794.  The Jameson Experience Tour is a fully guided tour around the original Midleton Distillery which brings the stories of Jameson’s rich heritage to life. You’ll learn about the hard working people and field-to-glass processes responsible for the whiskey that bears John Jameson’s name. On this tour, one of the friendly Jameson Ambassadors will guide you around some of the key buildings, including the warehouses and the Micro-Distillery. The tour finishes with your chance to do a guided comparative tasting of three famous whiskeys, one being Jameson.  In addition, all guests receive a complimentary glass of Jameson.   Duration 75 minutes.

To further enhance your visit, you can enjoy a tutored tasting of the distillery’s premium range of whiskey. During this experience, a Jameson Ambassador will take you through a premium whiskey tasting featuring our celebrated family members including Jameson Black Barrel, Redbreast 12 Year Old, Powers John’s Lane Release and Midleton Very Rare. Arrive as an appreciator, depart as an expert.  Duration 20 – 25 minutes.

Another option is the Behind the Scenes tour, an extended tour of the Jameson Distillery Midleton which helps you gain a deeper insight into the history, production, stories and enjoyment of Jameson Irish Whiskey.  On this tour, one of the expert Jameson Ambassadors will guide you around some of the key buildings, such as the Micro-Distillery,  the Cooperage, the Maturation Warehouse and a very special visit to the Distiller’s Cottage. Tastings of premium whiskeys are included throughout the tour, just a stone’s throw away from the stills where they are made to this day.  This tour is available twice a day at 11am and 3pm and lasts two hours (up to 15 participants).

Additional Information

If you love whiskey, the Distiller’s Apprentice Experience is the hosted tour for you – a deep dive into the workings of the Distillery, with Academy courses on the entire grain to glass production process as well as the heritage of Irish whiskey.  Once the learning’s done, you will be taken to the Live Distillery to see whiskey production right there and then, as well as tasting Jameson straight from the barrel.
