http://www.irish-whiskey-trail.com/jameson/jameson.htm I really enjoyed this tour. It was a guided tour only. Whiskey has been distilled here since the 19th century, and the old works were opened to the public after the new works were built in 1974. We sat through a short movie first, and then toured the buildings. We had read in the guidebook that at the end of the tour, we got a sample of Jameson and that two volunteers were selected for a taste testing. Mandy was prepared and was the female selected along with a guy named Allan Gordon from Manchester England. They got 6 tastes of various whiskeys and a certificate proclaiming them official Jameson taste testers. Bill and Mandy both got some whiskey in the gift shop. And Bill bought a Jameson short sleeved shirt since it was much warmer than we had anticipated.
