How can I tell if I have an authentic bottle of Jameson Whiskey?

Here are some signs that can help you figure out whether you’re buying an authentic bottle of Jameson (or any other spirit):

Place: Consider where you’re buying from. Buy from a reputable seller and make sure you get a valid receipt. If the seller has no credentials, it may not be an authentic bottle.

Price: Compare the product’s price with a supermarket or our online store. If you’re getting the bottle at a deep discount, it might not be the real thing.

Product: The whiskey shouldn’t contain debris, have an unusual smell, or be an unusual color. If any of these signs are present, don’t drink the spirit.

Packaging: Every bottle should be sealed and in perfect condition. If the printing is blurred, labels are imperfect, or the cap looks odd, you may not have a genuine bottle of Jameson.

Jameson Distillery Tours

Where is the Jameson distillery? How can I visit?

Jameson Distillery Bow St., Dublin, is where our story began back in 1780 and the home of Dublin’s only live maturation warehouse. However, we are no longer a working distillery – today, every drop of Jameson is made down in Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork.

So, if you’d like to visit a live distillery, we recommend visiting Midleton, Cork. If you want to visit where the story began in the heart of Dublin city, head on over to Jameson Distillery Bow St.

Does Jameson host tastings and tours?

**NOTE: Midleton Distillery closed as of 10/18 due to flooding

Firstly, our thoughts are with the communities and families in the Midleton and wider East Cork region who have been affected by the unprecedented and devastating flooding which occurred on October 18th.

As a result, we can confirm that Midleton Distillery Experience is closed. The site was damaged due to flooding, and we are currently working to understand the extent of the damage.

Our teams in Dublin and Midleton are working hard to ensure the continued safety of colleagues and the protection of our sites. We remain in close contact with all relevant local bodies.

Unfortunately, all tours & experiences scheduled for the coming days have been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
If your tour/experience has been impacted, you can contact us directly at bookings@midletondistilleryexperience.com.

As always, the health & safety of our team and customers is our top priority. We would like to thank you for your patience and support. We will post further updates on our socials and website in due course.

Best regards,
Midleton Distillery Experience Team
