JAMESON WHISKEY DISTILLERY TOUR in Midleton, Ireland

Sept. 30, 2016

How lucky is that?   I am in Ireland and I see  a rainbow !  So the  leprechaun and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow should be easy  to find, right?

Well, it wasn’t.  But I did find the Jameson Whiskey Distillery.  And, even though I don’t drink, and if I did drink, it sure wouldn’t be whiskey, but it was interesting to heard about the process and see the old time equipment.

This creative chandelier hangs in the reception room where you buy your ticket and a drink to have before the tour starts. I guess the drink sets the mood.  : )

Jameson Whiskey goes back to 1780.

I never  understood what the Worm Tub was used for, but they assured us, it did not have worms in it.

One thing I retained  about the  making of  whiskey is that they char the inside of the barrels where the whiskey will be stored.  These boots are worn by those workers  for obvious reasons.

The whiskey was sold only in  barrels in the beginning.

The barley was brought in everyday  by the farmers from many regions to keep up with the demand needed for making the whiskey.

This is the new modern  micro-brewery equipment Jameson uses  today.

    Hey, Jeannie! My girls and I did this tour when we went to Ireland in 2008. We enjoyed learning about the process and of course our complimentary drink at the end. Ireland is dear to my heart. Enjoy every day of your trip and be safe!
