Jameson Distillery Midleton

Jameson was born and raised in Dublin, but eventually, they outgrew their city home on Bow St. So in 1975, they moved their entire whiskey-making operation to the green surroundings of Midleton, Co. Cork. The original buildings at the impressive 15 acres Midleton Distillery site date back as far as 1794 and have been used to distil and mature their whiskeys since 1825.


Highlights include:


  • Jameson Distillery Midleton, is home to the largest Copper Pot Still in the world!
  • The Jameson Experience tour includes a visit to a live maturation warehouse where guests can enjoy being surrounded by 1,000 casks of mature whiskey and savour the amazing aromas.
  • The Behind The Scenes tour includes a tutored session in the live Micro-Distillery. Dedicated to producing innovative small-batch whiskey, where recipes are recreated from John Jameson’s original logbook dating back to the 1800s.
  • Whiskey fans can hand-fill a bottle of Jameson Black Barrel, at cask strength, from a live bourbon barrel. This Bottle Your Own experience allows guests to personalise their purchase and enter their details into the Jameson archive.
