The tour starts with a short movie explaining the history of Jameson Whiskey and is followed by being walked through the production from malting the barley to the triple distilling and aging process. All in all it makes for a very interesting tour.
At the end of the tour you get to taste a Jameson. A few volunteers get to do a comparative tasting. It was a tough choice but I volunteered just so I could report back. You get to taste each while drinking water in between. I have to say the Irish did taste much smoother. But one of the volunteers preferred the Scotch. No he was not forcibly removed from the premises.
My hard work was rewarded with a certificate. I am now an Official Qualified Irish Whiskey Taster.
This is one cool chandelier . I think you could probably make this with any kind of bottle.
A short walk from the distillery over the River Liffey steps from Christchurch Cathedral in the heart of what was once Viking Dublin is Ireland’s oldest inn. The Brazen Head has been in operation since 1198. This place is really worth a visit.
I created a couple of 360 degree Photosynths. I love the coffin leaning against the fireplace in the library.
