An interesting tour led by a surprisingly knowledgeable guide. At the end you get a glass of Jameson and they look for volunteers for a guided taste comparison between Jameson, Johnnie Walker Black and JD. Fair play to them for including the JW Black instead of the red; the Jameson stacks up pretty well!

A sunny morning at the old Midleton distillery.
A friendly guide told what we should know about the making of a good whisky. After a tour of approx. 1 hour some visitors could join a tasting session what showed the differences between the triple distilled Jameson, a American Whiskey an a double distilled scotch whisky.
Friendly staff in the visitor centre helped us by packing the presents

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this tour. I'm not a whiskey drinker but nevertheless was fascinated by the process, the facilities, and the stories conveyed by our friendly and very knowledgeable guide. At the end of the tour, each guest received a free drink of Jameson (solo or with ginger ale) and eight lucky guests were selected to participate in a "taste test", comparing Irish, Scotch, and American whiskeys, all made with different processes.

They have a large gift shop with a good selection of items.

Nice tour, guide was very knowledgable , was sort of expecting more at 14 euro a head , not a cheap place to visit !
