About Bushmills The Original Irish Whiskey

Bushmills is the seconds largest Irish whiskey distiller and the world's oldest licensed whiskey distillery, with its story starting over 400 years ago, in 1608, when King James I granted Sir Thomas Phillips, a local land owner, the license to distil in the area. The Old Bushmills Distillery Company was officially established in 1784 by Hugh Anderson. Remaining faithful to its mission of making the finest whiskey, the distillery successfully weathered the hardships of centuries. In the 1850s, when the Crown imposed a tax on distilling in Ireland through a tax on barley, this forever changed Irish whiskey, as almost every Irish whiskey distillery began substituting corn or other inferior grains for barley. However, Bushmills stuck to barley, and continued to make its single malt. In 1885, a disastrous fire destroyed the distillery, which was soon rebuild and the production was relaunched to meet soaring US demand. After the US Prohibition started in 1920 and brought the exports to a major market to a halt, the number of distilleries in Ireland shrunk, however Bushmills persisted on its course and was ready to send what was reportedly the biggest shipment of whiskey ever to leave an Irish port when the Eighteenth Amendment was repealed in 1933.

The distillery, located just a few miles from Ireland’s north coast, is closely connected to the village Bushmills, named for the mills along the River Bush. Generations of villagers have worked at the distillery and passed down the experience and craft that go into making the finest Irish whiskey. The Old Bushmills Distillery is an Irish icon, and its illustration is featured on the series of Bank of Ireland notes issued in 2008. Bushmills is currently owned by Jose Cuervo.

The Bushmills Original is a rich and smooth classic Irish blend of the distillery’s single malt whiskey and a lighter grain whiskey. Its recipe dates back to before Prohibition. The whiskey for the brand’s signature expression is triple distilled, and then matured in both bourbon and sherry casks, before being bottled at 80 proof.

About Bushmills

In the words of Master Distiller Colum Egan, the world’s oldest licensed whiskey is not good because it’s old, but rather it’s the other way around. Granted the royal license to distill in 1608, Bushmills is located in the village of Bushmills on the north coast of Ireland. Embedded in the lives of the locals who work side by side in this legendary distillery, the water is sourced from the River Bush that flows through the village.

More than 400 years later, Bushmills is still delighting its loyal fans with new offerings. The distillery weathered everything from a disastrous fire, the Prohibition and devastating grain taxes because of its uncompromising commitment to quality – even when other Irish whiskeys were forever changed due to a tax on barley, this legendary distillery continued distilling single malt whiskey in the traditional way, never substituting barley for corn or other inferior grains. Among its endless accolades, the distillery boasts the only Gold Medal for whiskey ever to be awarded at the Paris 1889 Expo.

About Irish Whiskey

Contrary to popular belief that Scots invented whisk(e)y, Irish whiskey was mentioned almost a century before its Scottish brother.

Its origin comes from the perfume distilling monks who decided to tweak the recipe a bit, creating Irish whiskey.

Irish whiskey doesn’t have a lot of rules and regulations to be considered “pure” and can be made with various grains and processes, as long as it is aged for at least three years in wooden casks and has a max ABV of 94.8%.
