At the Jameson Experience, visitors take a tour of The Old Midleton Distillery and learn the journey through the story of Irish whiskey via an audio-visual presentation. The Jameson Experience in Midleton is approx. a 20 – 25 minute drive from Clayton Hotel Cork City.
Follow the old distillery trail through mills, malting, corn stores, still house, warehouses and kilns and sample the renowned Jameson Whiskey in the bar with minerals for children. All tours are brought around the cooperage centre where you can learn all the techniques and skills in distilling.
Visitors can also see the largest original Pot Still, with a capacity of 32,000 gallons and the Old Waterwheel manufactured in 1825 to provide motive power prior to the days of electricity, and is still turning today. While at the distillery why not take the opportunity to become a qualified Irish whiskey taster and be presented with a certificate.
After your tour of the distillery why not dine at the Malthouse Restaurant, where there is outstanding local cuisine severed daily. The restaurant is very popular with locals so book early to avoid disappointment. If you’re not looking for cuisine why not pop next door to the Jameson bar where you may sample more drink or the seasonal whiskey cocktails which are provided.
