The tour is about an hour, it's easy to get there, free parking and beautiful buildings. Plenty of whiskey and a big shop that offers the possibility of labeling your own bottles. There's a restaurant with hot food, an outstanding fish and chips and a warm pot of tea. Plenty of screen count down to the tour. However we were... More

I would not usually do these type of tours however to use up time we did. Middleton is a fabulous town and the whiskey tour is super.

This was the highlight of my two week tour of Scotland and Ireland. To see how the favorite whiskey of 3 of our is made and then to be tasters was the Best! To be a taster, stay to the front of your tour group and chat with the guide. So, we were in by 11 and trashed by 2... More

We learned so much about the process of making Jameson and even got to sample some at the end of the tour. Now... More

My wife and I took the tour. It was fun. It felt a bit rushed but it was a neat tour. The food in the restaurant was good. We got there later in the day just before closing and they were out of a few things but we found other things on the menu.

Unfortunately we did not have time for the full visit but we were looked after exceptionally well by the barman who gave us all the information we needed and was of course very knowledgeable about the different Whiskeys and guided us through a short tasting.
