Maria is the ultimate Goddess of Jamison behind the scenes tour. Her knowledge and skill as our guide was fantastic. Ending with bottling my own bottle was the icing on the cake. Would recommend this once in a lifetime tour to anyone for your bucket list.

I did the Discoverer course in the Acadamy and was very impressed about the organisation, information and fun we had on the day. The staff is exceptional and very good in providing information. The behind the scenes parts are just so impressive and you won't get this on any normal Distillerty visit (I've visited a few). If you a worried... More

However, I am so glad we we went to the Midleton location as it is quite beautiful and historic as well as having the modern current day production facility next door (not on the tour). If was very informative and fun and certainly worth doing if... More

We the best afternoon ever. It was fun and informative and full of stories. The drop of whiskey at the end was a nice touch also. I would highly recommend it. Both outdoors and indoors so bring warm clothes if winter. A nice walk though.

When in Ireland you sample Irish whiskey!!! Took the tour of this wonderful distillery which was instructive and informative. The brand is full of rich history and lore and the facility tells of it wonderfully. After the tour and tasting, I took the more in depth educational tasting that taught me much more of the nuances of the whiskey. I... More
