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.
