History of Bushmills

A Whiskey produced since 1608

Did you know that Bushmills whiskey was produced in the oldest distillery in the world?! It all began in 1608, when the Old Bushmills Distillery was built. A pure Irish whiskey was produced there very quickly: Bushmills, named after the city where the distillery is located.

This alcohol is produced using an elaborate technique of triple distillation of the beverage. It passes through and through the same still three times, giving it a particular and terribly “irish” flavour. In fact, there is hardly any other country other than Ireland that distils its alcohol in this way. That’s why Irish whiskey has such a “typical” taste.

From century to century, the reputation of the Bushmills grows in popularity, and the distillery decides to produce variants of its famous whiskey, ageing its beverage more or less. The Black Bush is an interesting derivative, highly appreciated by the great Irish whiskey lovers…

With its constantly increasing sales, the success of the distillery is so great that it still continues to this day. The distillery currently produces thousands of litres of whiskey a year, which are then exported throughout Ireland and around the world.
