Old Bushmills Distillery
We didn’t create just any Irish whiskey. We created Bushmills.
Based on the famous Causeway Coast is The Old Bushmills Distillery, the oldest licenced distillery in Ireland. We got our first license to distil back in 1608, meaning we have been producing our Irish whiskey for over 400 years and counting.
When you visit us you will see for yourself how we create our single malt spirit from malted barley, yeast, and water. We are the only “grain to glass” distillery in Ireland, and our guided tour takes through all the stages required, from malted barley arriving, mashing, fermentation, triple distillation, blending, and finally bottling. Our passion and expertise has been handed down from generation to generation and it shows in every bottle of our whiskey.
After your tour you will be offered a whiskey or a soft drink in our 1608 Bar. Or experience one of our tutored whiskey tastings with one of our Brand Ambassador’s. Our restaurant serves whiskey themed treats all day and (Irish) coffee. Our Gift and Whiskey Shop has many Bushmills branded items and our Bushmills whiskeys. You are welcome to visit the shop and restaurant without taking a tour.
