While St. Patrick’s Day might have many people feeling a wee bit Irish, the Jameson Distillery on Tour opens the doors to a sip of the iconic Irish whiskey. Although it does not require a plane trip to the legendary distillery on Bow St., the special pop-up event has many people gaining a greater appreciation for the smooth liquor. Isn’t it time that you raised a glass and said Slainte?

Some liquors are iconic. While Irish whiskey is quite diverse, Jameson is a well-known name. Whether it is the person who appreciates a simple pour on the rocks or has shaken the spirit in a variety of cocktails, the golden liquor is more than just a St. Patrick’s Day sipper.

Although some people have made the journey to the historic distillery in Ireland, the beloved brand has brought a taste of the spirit to Hudson Yards. The special pop-up event brings the story as well as the process to guests.

For example, the art of barrel making has been passed down through five generations. The immersive experience, Jameson Black Barrel, combines sights, sounds and smells. Whether it is the char’s heat that adds the first layer of flavor to the vanilla aroma that lingers in the nose, many guests will find a great appreciation to opening a bottle.

While the Jameson Distillery on Tour event is just 20 minutes long, it is a celebration of both the classic spirit and the Irish culture. For example, popular Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy made a surprise appearance at the event on August 25. Throughout the event, there are various music performances to bring the sounds of Ireland to guests.

Whether guests are new to the triple-distillation of the classic Irish whiskey, are old friends with the spirit, or just want to enjoy a special pop-up event, the Jameson Distillery on Tour should not be missed. Book a visit today and let this Irish saying be a reminder that “may good and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam.
