This distinctive Irish malt matures for 16 years in a series of sherry-, bourbon- and port wine-seasoned casks. It’s a unique combination, which we gratefully credit for the whiskey’s deep notes of fruits, nuts and spice.

Distinction
Ireland’s only
Bushmills, in County Antrim, is the only ‘grain to grass’ distillery in Ireland and one of only a handful in the world.
Craft
Hot air
Bushmills takes unpeated malted barley (dried by hot air, not peat fire) for a non-smoky flavour, and triple distils in slender pots.
Ageing
Mixed sleep
Maturation takes 16 years in a distinctive mix of former bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, followed by several more months in port wine barrels.
