‘We’re not good because we’re old, we’re old because we’re good’
Bushmills is the oldest licensed whiskey in the world. Official Bushmills records stretch back as far as the year 1608, when the Bushmills area was first granted its license to distill. Over 400 years later, whiskey is still being made in Bushmills, thanks to the experience and craft that has been passed down from generation to generation.
‘Without the village there would be no whiskey, and without the whiskey there would be no village’
Bushmills is more than just a whiskey, it’s a village where family, friends and neighbours work side by side at the distillery. Bushmills spirits are made with water drawn from the River Bush, that flows over beds of basalt rocks, from river to rock to barley.
