The Old Midleton Distillery offers a tour around the old distillery facilities and the technological equipment and provides complex information about all production stages – from the grain selection up to fermentation in barrels. You can get to know a lot about the procedures connected with triple distillation, which is, by the way, the reason why the taste of Jameson whiskey is perfectly smooth. In addition to the tour around the production and storage facilities and equipment, including the biggest pot still in the world, it is worth spending at least a while at the touch screen with interesting information about the history of the Jameson family to find out, for example, why every label on every bottle of Jameson whiskey reads "Sine Metu" and what the words actually mean. Did you know that there is a strong connection between John Jameson, the "father" of Jameson whiskey brand, and Marconi, the inventor of the radio?
At the end of the tour, you will be offered a shot of whiskey in the Jameson Bar, of course for free (actually, only if you are over eighteen) . You will get to know what other drinks you can mix with Irish whiskey. At the very end, several volunteers are asked to participate in a whiskey tasting competition. If they are able to distinguish different types of whiskey (Irish, Scotch, American, etc.) they are awarded an Irish whiskey expert certificate.
