3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Bushmills Irish Whiskey is the original and best known whiskey from the Old Bushmills Distillery, the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world. It is a blend of single malt and single grain whiskeys.

Grain whiskey reserved for Bushmills is aged a minimum of five years in oak casks that are specially selected to bring out the golden hue and light, yet distinctive characteristics of the whiskey.

When mature, this grain whiskey is blended with a single malt whiskey to balance the flavour. The malt used in our mash derives its clean taste from the deliberate absence of peat used in the barley drying process. Irish whiskey distilleries kiln-dry their malt in a heat-fired, not peat-fired, oven.

Lighter, no smoke and perfectly balanced, Bushmills is triple distilled for exceptional smoothness.

Tasting notes
Nose: Fragrant maltiness with a gentle toasted woodbackground, and a delicate fruitness.

Palate: Malty with sweet, spicy, vanilla and oaky notes.

Finish: On taste, it is complex, spicy, slightly dry, with a lingering delicate maltiness. A gentle, approachable whiskey, for drinking any time, on its own or on the rocks, and its light taste makes it an ideal base for cocktails.

Toffee and milk chocolate are readily apparent on the nose with deeper notes of toasted oat and honey. White chocolate fudge, clementine, ripe nectarine and smoke join forces to carry this whiskey into a long, semisweet and raisin-like finish.

Notes of toffee, vanilla and baked apple on the nose. White fruits, vanilla and fudge abound on the palate, with a tasty rich and long finish. Multilayered and complex.
