Old Bushmills Distillery

WorldHost
4 star Visitor Attraction
Bushmills Irish Whiskey is made at Ireland’s oldest working distillery in County Antrim, Northern Ireland on the beautiful North Coast. Our original grant to distil was signed in 1608 by King James 1st and there has been distillation on this site since then, using the unique water from our own stream and Irish barley. The Bushmills Brand Experience encompasses guided tours around a working distillery with all the associated sights and smells, tutored whiskey tastings, a specialist whiskey shop and a well stocked gift shop with exclusive Bushmills merchanise. At the conclusion of your tour you will be offered a whiskey or a soft drink in our 1608 Bar. There is also a restaurant serving lunches and Bushmills inspired treats throughout the day. The Distillery Tour Centre is open 7 days a week.

Please see www.bushmills.com for more information. Please note the tour is not suitable for children under 8 years old or anyone with walking difficulties.

The Bushmills brand portfolio includes five award-winning whiskies: Bushmills Original, Black Bush, Bushmills 10 Year Single Malt, Bushmills 16 Year Single Malt and Bushmills 21 Year Single Malt. We also have our Distillery Reserve, a 12 Year Single Malt available to taste and buy only from the Distillery.
The label on this whiskey can be personalised by our Gift Shop. A new addition to our family is Bushmills Irish Honey. All our whiskies can be purchased online (for UK and Ireland) at mail.order.bushmills@diageo.com.

Bushmills is the only distillery in Ireland to make triple-distilled single malt whiskey. During your tour you will see the copper potstills used to distil this special spirit. The triple-distillation is at the heart of all Bushmills whiskies and creates a unique combination of smoothness and richness.

Bushmills Irish Whiskey is owned by Diageo, the world’s leading premium drinks business.
