A trip to Bow Street Distillery is a pilgrimage for whiskey aficionados. For everyone else it’s just a great chance to dig deeper into the history of Dublin (and one of Ireland’s most famous exports). Although distilling no longer takes place onsite, a trip here is an excellent way to understand the how and why of whiskey. And – of course – try “a coupla wee drams” of the golden liquid.
This ticket gets you a 40-minute guided tour that will give you a real appreciation for everything Jameson, from their heritage to the production process. It may also give you a light buzz, as the last part of the tour includes a comparative tasting, so you can understand the key differences between Scotch whisky, American bourbon, and Irish whiskey.
After your comparison tasting, you can enjoy a complimentary glass of Jameson – neat, on the rocks, or however you fancy! Afterward, you can hang out in JJs, the in-house bar, and carry on the good times.
Oh, this tour also includes a Jameson Whiskey Tasting Certificate, which you can point to next time you pour an after-dinner round for dinner guests.
