J.J.Coppinger's is located 300 metres from The Jameson Experience. Our neighbour on Distillers Walk is the world largest distiller of Irish whiskey and a much-celebrated home to a whiskey distillery since 1825. Our Whiskey Bar pays homage to Midleton's world renowned tradition of distilling.
Stocking a growing selection of 100 whiskeys, we are East Cork's premier whiskey bar. While exploring Ireland's Ancient East or after a tour of the distillery, call in for an authentic Irish experience and be entertained by our Whiskey Academy trained bartenders.
J.J.Coppinger’s is home to a display cabinet containing a very special collection of Midleton Very Rare Whiskeys, valued at approximately €60,000. The collection is one of only 6 in the world and is currently one shy of completion (a Midleton Very Rare 1988).
A whiskey uprising kicked-off on 55 Main Street, Midleton in February 2017 as J.J. Coppinger's bar held ‘The Whiskey Rebellion’, in association with Irish Distillers.
We celebrate each Wednesday with whiskey sour specials for €5 each. We continue the 19th Century tradition in making a whiskey sour using the following ingredients:
Bootlegging originated during the American Civil War, when soldiers would sneak liquor into the army camps by concealing bottles in their boots.
Here you can read about our whiskey adventures, steal our recipes, get the low down on whiskey news, reviews and everything in between.

The story is thick and rich – littered with folklore, seductive mythology and a quick Irish wit.
The decor is eclectic; aged mirrors, solid timberfloors, exposed brick & stoned walls, marble fireplace & brass light fittings.
The bar is stacked with a selection of whiskeys, while memorabilia honouring the fearless Irish who fought in the American Civil War is to be found throughout the venue, adding to the sense of history within these time wornwalls.
J.J. Coppinger's retains the charm and characteristics of this grand 19th century listed building while adding some contemporary class in keeping with the palpable architectural beauty of this establishment.
