Discover the Jameson Irish Whiskey story, where the last chapter is drinkable. Visit the original Bow Street distillery in Smithfield Dublin, the place we’ve called home ever since John Jameson first set up shop in 1780. A trip to Bow Street offers guided tours and tasting experiences that will give you a real appreciation for the Jameson story, from our heritage, to our production process which gives us our unique, iconic taste.
The Old Jameson Distillery is also home to a restaurant that serves lunch every day, a gift shop where you can purchase exclusive Jameson gifts or even bottle your own cask strength Jameson Select Reserve. With a greater appreciation of our whiskey under your belt you will be able to sample our full range at JJ’s Bar, take a Master class with a whiskey tasting or just try some of our great Jameson cocktails.
A guided tour, where you will see, taste and smell the Jameson Irish whiskey experience. Our passionate tour guides will walk you through the living history of the Old Jameson Distillery, where the legend of John Jameson began. You’ll get a glimpse into our past, and the craft and traditions that we have lived by, for over two centuries.
You will end the tour by putting theory into practice, with a comparative tasting, giving you an understanding of the key differences between Scotch, American and Jameson Irish Whiskey. Since memories can fade over time, you’ll also be given a refreshing Jameson Ginger and Lime, a coveted Jameson Whiskey Tasting Certificate, and all the bragging rights that come with it.
