Tullamore Dew Visitor Centre

Located in an old warehouse, part of the original Tullamore distillery, this visitors centre shows how a blended Irish whiskey was produced. Tullamore Dew whiskey, and its sister product, Irish Mist whiskey liquer, are well-known throughout Ireland and around the world. Today, the centre is museum rather than a working distillery -- no whiskey is produced in the midlands town that gave it its name (Tullamore Dew is now made in Dublin). Nevertheless, visitors to Tullamore centre will have lots to see -- including much of the original machinery, pots, caskets and stills that were used in the distillation process. The centre is situated alongside the canal, where ships would once be loaded with their cargo of whiskey.

Old Jameson Distillery

The original site of John Jameson's distillery on Bow St. Dublin West, Dublin is now a museum offering visitors an education in the distillation of whiskey from grain to bottle. The Jameson Company was established in 1780 and produced one of Ireland's most famous whiskies for nearly 200 years until local distillers merged to form the Irish Distillers. The brand was acquired by French drinks conglomerate Pernod Ricard in 1988. The Jameson distillery operation was moved to an ultra -modern establishment in Middleton, County Cork and still produces Jameson Whiskey, although vatting still takes place at the Bow St. location. When Jameson acquired the distillery on Bow St. in 1780, it was producing 30,000 gallons annually.
