Dublin must be a paradise for lovers of the processes of making alcoholic beverages. The most famous museum dedicated to one is the Guinness Storehouse but there is also another dedicated to whiskey, the old Jameson Distillery, The Old Jameson Distillery, in English.
It is not as colorful or visited as the temple of beer, but if you like whiskey, and more specifically this brand, you should not miss the opportunity to visit this old distillery and learn first-hand about the process of making this drink.
Visit the Old Jameson Distillery
The old Jameson Distillery, situated north of the River Liffey west of the Mary Street shopping area.
It was founded by John Jameson in 1780 and for almost 200 years it was the place where the famous whiskey was made until it became too small and production had to be moved.
Currently it is possible to visit this small distillery in a guided way on a journey through the history of whiskey and its production process, which is unknown to many people.
The only disadvantage is that the visits are only in English, so if you do not speak this language you will not be able to enjoy the explanations that immerse you in the production process, from grinding, maceration and fermentation to distillation and maturation.
After the explanations comes the moment that whiskey lovers are longing for and that is none other than the moment of tasting.
You will not only be able to taste the Jameson but also different ones to compare them with and discover which one you like the most.
You can find more information on the official Jameson website.
