The Distillery on Tour welcomes you into a special tasting journey, which begins with a 30-minute multi-sensory experience led by knowledgeable brand ambassadors. We were guided into a one-of-a-kind storytelling of how Jameson was created, distilled, bottled, and enjoyed.

We won’t spoil you much on the details but it was insightful to know how Jameson whiskey came about and how each stage and process affects its taste.

Once we’re done learning about the history and process of making Jameson whiskey, we were then led upstairs for the tasting session where we got the multi-sensory experience of exploring this Irish whiskey’s taste and what sets it apart from other whiskeys.

With each sniff, swirl and sip, you can really notice the dinstinction which makes me realize that Jameson might be the best whiskey for Filipinos because of its slightly sweet taste.

After the tasting session, you can get to enjoy Jameson Ginger & Lime, the signature drink that has truly become a crowd favorite.
