Old Bushmills Distillery

4 star Visitor Attraction
Bushmills Irish Whiskey is made at Ireland’s oldest working distillery in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. 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. There is also a restaurant serving lunches and Bushmills inspired treats throughout the day. The Distillery Tour Centre is open 7 days a week.

The brand portfolio includes five award-winning whiskeys: Bushmills, Black Bush, Bushmills 10 year Malt, Bushmills 16 year Malt and Bushmills 21 year Malt.

Bushmills is the only distillery in Ireland to make triple-distilled malt whiskey. This is at the heart of all Bushmills whiskeys and creates a unique combination of smoothness and richness.

In 2008 Bushmills celebrated the 400th anniversary of the original licence to distil whiskey granted to the Bushmills area in 1608. The distillery marked the occasion with the release of a limited edition Irish whiskey of exceptional smoothness, Bushmills 1608.

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