Old Midleton Distillery
A tour of the distillery is a journey through the story of Irish whiskey via an audio-visual presentation which is available in six languages.
On offer too is an opportunity to become a qualified Irish Whiskey taster, with presentation of certificate. An elegant restaurant and craft shop are located on the premises. The Restaurant is closed for the Winter period, while the Craft Shop remains open.
A tour of The Old Midleton Distillery is unlike any tour you've ever been on before. It is much more a path of discovery. One which will take you through the magnificent courtyard area, evoking the atmosphere of harvest time with farmers arriving with horses and carts piled high with sacks of grain ready to sell to the Distillery.
Take the path to the Distiller's cottage. See the giant waterwheel which at one stage powered all of the distillery machinery, and today still turns the cogs and wheels in the Mill Building. In the Brew House you will see the largest pot still in the World. While at The Old Cooperage you can literally touch the Distillery's resonant past. Then complete the experience in the only way possible with a well earned whiskey tasting session in the Jameson Bar!
