Bushmills is considered the classic malty Irish blend. It is matured in carefully selected Oloroso sherry casks. It is blended with elegant grain whiskey and can be aged up to 11 years. 90-95 PT - SUPERB / Highly Recommended - Wine Enthusiast Possesses a high ratio (80%+) of malt whiskey. Black Bush’s racy bouquet offers aromas of toffee, cotton candy, malt mash and cream highlight. Palate entry is deep, dark caramel-like and stunningly luscious. Simply one of the greatest whiskeys from Ireland.

Bushmills is one of the world`s oldest distilleries having been founded in 1608. It is the only distillery in Northern Ireland. Bushmills is distilled in the same kind of copper pot stills that you find in Scotch Malt whisky production. It is distilled three times for increased smoothness. Bushmills Original is a blend of Bushmills Malt Whiskey and Irish grain whisky. It is the cornerstone of the distillery`s production and is clean with touch of honied sweetness and vanilla character.
It is this spirit the inspiration of many legends such as the St. Patrick's, the patron of Irish Whiskey, who taught people how to distillate the spirit. Whiskey dates back to the 15th Century when it was produced by the Monks with the only objective to create a medicine for "healing purposes". It was also produced by farmers in order to make a good use of remaining grains after the harvests.
