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. They got their first license to distil back in 1608, meaning they have been producing their Irish whiskey for over 400 years and counting.
When you visit you will see for yourself how they create our single malt spirit from malted barley, yeast, and water. They are the only “grain to glass” distillery in Ireland, and their guided tour takes you through all the stages required, from malted barley arriving, mashing, fermentation, triple distillation, blending, and finally bottling. Their passion and expertise has been handed down from generation to generation and it shows in every bottle of their whiskey.
After your tour you will be offered a whiskey or a soft drink in their 1608 Bar. Or experience one of their tutored whiskey tastings with one of their Brand Ambassador’s. Their restaurant serves whiskey themed treats all day and (Irish) coffee. Their Gift and Whiskey Shop has many Bushmills branded items and Bushmills whiskeys. You are welcome to visit the shop and restaurant without taking a tour
