Jameson Distillery Tour
We spent one of our afternoons in Dublin visiting the Jameson Distillery on Bow Street which was founded in 1780 by John Jameson. On our tour, we learned about Jameson's triple distillation process which sets it apart from Scotch whiskey (which is double distilled) and American whiskey (single distilled). The Jameson family motto is "Sine Metu" which means "without fear" and it is printed on every bottle. We got to taste some different types of whiskey for comparison purposes. I'm not a big whiskey fan, so that was not my favorite part, but I did try them all and I could taste the difference! After the tour we visited the Daily Grog counter for our choice of free drinks. The one I picked is in the last photo, Jameson and ginger ale with lime. I think I managed to drink about half of it, but my daughter finished hers off.
