About the Old Bushmills Distillery

Bushmills Irish Whiskey is made at Ireland’s oldest working distillery in County Antrim, Northern Ireland on the beautiful North Coast. The original grant to distil was signed in 1608 by King James 1st and there has been distillation on the site since then, using the unique water from its own stream and Irish barley.

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. There is also the Distillery Reserve, a 12 Year Single Malt available to taste and buy only from the Distillery.
