How Jameson Distillery Bow St. Smithfield is celebrating Christmas

Words: Ellen Kenny

As one of the best Irish seasons approaches, one of the best Irish spirits, Jameson, is inviting everyone to enjoy a tour and whiskey tasting at the birthplace of Irish whiskey in Dublin.

This December, Jameson Distillery Bow St. are inviting fans of whiskey to learn how to make their own cocktails and sample some whiskey directly from a barrel. Between their Jameson Whiskey Cocktail Making C lass, a Black Barrel Blending Class, and a tour through the distillery to follow in the footsteps of the founding father of John Jameson, there’s something for everyone at Bow St. this Christmas.

Taking place within the Distillery in JJ’s Bar in Smithfield, Jameson Distillery is offering an amazing opportunity to create new memories this Christmas with a classic Irish cocktail. 

Jameson Distillery Bow St. Tour

Jameson Distillery Bow St. Tour invites guests to take a peek into an institution that has been a constant presence in the heart of Dublin since 1780. Guests will enjoy a serving of history and heritage, learning about the stories and secrets that made Jameson the quintessential drink it is today. They are also offering a Jameson Whiskey Tasting for a behind-the-scenes insight into how the whiskey is made. Where else can you enjoy a delicious drink in the exact spot it was created? 

Black Barrel Blending Class

Jameson are also inviting fans of a Black Barrel to make their own through their 90 minute Jameson Black Barrel Blending Class. Led by a Craft Ambassador, guests can learn what makes the rich, smooth taste of Jameson Black Barrel so unique. While every glass of whiskey is made to perfection, your drink will taste all the better knowing that you made it yourself and participated in a classic Dublin institution. 

Cocktail Making Class

Guests can also become cocktail maestros with a Jameson Cocktail Making Class. All participants will have the chance to make three cocktails, shaken and stirred. Between Jameson Whiskey Sour, Jameson Old Fashioned and Jameson Punch, there’s something for all tastes. Jameson’s expert cocktail makers will also offer guests stories and insights into turning a classic Irish whiskey into new and delicious cocktails. 

There are non-alcoholic cocktails in spades too that earnestly taste as if they were designed to be good drinks and not shoved in as afterthoughts. Participants at the class will also enjoy a punch at JJ’s bar and a complimentary Bow St. journal after the experience. 

Jameson are feeling particularly generous this Christmas, and inviting guests to try a whiskey never tasted outside the Distillery. Their premium secret whiskey tasting allows participants to enjoy four family favourite drinks with a whiskey expert- Jameson Original, Crested, Distillery Edition and Black Barrel Cask Strength. Two of these flavours are only available within the Distillery, offering a new and rich blend from an old institution. Guests can treat their taste buds to an entirely new whiskey experience that is not to be missed. 

Along with exclusive gifts and a trip to JJ’s Bar, Jameson Distillery Bow St. is offering the perfect destination for whiskey gifts, cocktails and experiences at Dublin this Christmas.

Click here to get tickets to all these experiences events at Jameson Distillery Bow St.. Keep in mind that, due to alcoholic consumption, you cannot attend the Black Barrel Blending class, the Whiskey Making Class and the Jameson Distillery Bow St. Tour on the same day. 

Enjoy Jameson’s responsibly.
