A world-class tour, right on our doorstep.

The World Travel Awards took place over the weekend, and in among the best of the best in world, one of the awards given on the night was for World’s Leading Distillery Award, and it went to Jameson Distillery on Bow Street in Dublin.

The Dublin-based distillery was one of the finalists for the award, alongside Macallan in Scotland, Hennessy in France, Jack Daniels in Tennessee, and Jose Cuervo in Mexico.

Greg Hughes, Managing Director Jameson Brand Homes and Education at Irish Distillers, had this to say about the win: “We are extremely humbled and honoured to be awarded this very special accolade. We embarked upon an ambitious renovation project in late 2016 and since we reopened the doors to Bow St. in March of 2017, the new-look Jameson Distillery experience has fast become the must-visit whiskey destination in the world.

“We are proud that an experience in the heart of Smithfield that champions all that is great about Ireland and Irish whiskey has been commended on the world stage. This award is a fantastic recognition for the amazing team at Bow St. who provide each and every person that visits us with an unforgettable experience.”
