THE DUBLIN WHISKEY STORY
Discover the magic of the one-time whiskey making capital of the world and sample some great whiskeys while you’re in our care! We travel in luxury transport and the trail is fully guided by an expert whiskey host.
WHISKEY ADVENTURE BEGINS AT 12:45pm DAILY
Our meeting point is James Fox Cigar & Whiskey Shop at 119 Grafton Street. The shop is in a very central location, just across the road from the front gates of Trinity College. Your friendly whiskey host is here to meet you and check you in for the tour and you have time to browse through the vast stocks of whiskeys while we wait for all guests to arrive.
Just next door we have our first stop – The Irish Whiskey Museum – a very fitting introduction to Irish Whiskey. Enjoy the captivating anecdotes of talented story tellers as they take you on a journey through the ages revealing the origins of Irish whiskey, its rise to glory, dramatic downfall and current global revival. Tasting of 3 quintessential Irish whiskeys included at the end of the tour, in the bar.
visit the ORIGINAL HOME OF JAMESON IRISH WHISKEY
We board our luxury transport which is stationed not far from the museum and we travel along the River Liffey to Smithfield – to the home of Jameson Irish Whiskey. John Jameson started distilling his famous whiskey here in 1780 and today, the Jameson visitor centre in the old distillery buildings is one of the most popular attractions in the city. Rather than taking the tour here at Jameson’s we have arranged a very special whiskey tasting for guests – the cask draw experience in the new live maturation warehouse – not to be missed.
Discover a working distillery in the Liberties
You will have time to shop at Jamesons before we head back over the river to the south of the city. We visit an old neighbourhood of Dublin, the Liberties, which once housed 32 of Dublin’s 37 working distilleries in the 19th century. All 32 distilleries disappeared at some point in the 20th century, but now – they’ve started to return!
By April of 2019, four operational distilleries will be making whiskey again in the Liberties. From April onwards, Roe & Co Distillery will be a permanent fixture on our Dublin Whiskey Story, but until then we take you to one of the other three distilleries for a glance at their distillery floor and a tasting of their goods along the way!
We finish our whiskey trail at The Celtic Whiskey Shop for a tasting of two premium Irish whiskeys with one of the store’s whiskey ambassadors. Then you’re free to browse their stocks and maybe buy the whiskeys you liked on tour!
