Wine Maker Notes
“Bushmills‚ the golden member of the family. It’s a blend of triple distilled single malt whiskey with a lighter irish grain whiskey. The folks back at the old distillery will tell you it’s an approachable whiskey with a rich‚ warming taste of fresh fruit and vanilla. Me? Well - to me it has a fruity burst that sits on my tongue before turning to honey in my cheeks. Try it and you’ll see what I mean.”
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.
