This world famous whiskey originated in Dublin, but it is here where the 'water of life' is now created. Step back in time to the days when harvested grain was brought by horse and cart to be blended into this distinct drink. A giant waterwheel, Distiller's cottage and the world's largest pot still are among the tour highlights. And don't leave without sampling a tipple or two at the Jameson Bar or Malt House Restaurant, then bagging a gift at the shop. To find nirvana, head 8km east of Cork.
