Wine Maker Notes
“Well‚ it takes a special dedication to create the Bushmills 16 year-old‚ that and lots of patience. Two whiskeys are matured for 16 years‚ one in a bourbon barrel and the other in sherry‚ and then they are married together in a sweet port infused cask. It’s a marriage made in heaven!”
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.
