Is the Bushmills Irish Honey no longer available anywhere in the U.S.? Are there any plans to have it available again in the future?
We very much enjoy Bushmills Irish Honey whiskey. The honey aftertaste is very subtle and enjoyable, unlike other honey whiskeys where the honey taste is almost overpowering. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to obtain this in the Midwest, so I was quite pleased when I saw that this is available through Wine Chateau!!

Wine Maker Notes
“The blenders and distillers have been busy with this new honey infused spirit drink‚ and‚ personally‚ I feel they deserve to put their feet up and enjoy the fruits of their labour. A delicious fruity‚ smooth start that flushes out to a sweet honey buzz on the tongue.”
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.
