1608 Bushmills Distillery
1608 Bushmills Distillery tour provides a unique insight into the worlds oldest distillery and the chance to taste Ireland’s best Whiskey
In Ireland we like to do things in threes, it’s in our psyche you will see it in our art, our jewellery our faith and it’s there in the rhythm of our language when we speak.
To complete our “trinity” we are continuing with our ethos of collaboration by working with the World’s oldest licensed Distillery, Bushmills.
Sitting proudly in the small rural village of Bushmills this Distillery has a family feel to it which in today's modern world is very unique.
The history of this place and its people are inextricably linked, generations of local families have worked here and their pride in their ancestry and their history of making Whiskey is tangible when you visit.
At this totally unique place we are happy to leave the tour guiding and sampling to the Whiskey Ambassadors from the Bushmills Distillery. We will be delighted to accompany you and take part in “the Craic” as they guide your journey of discovery into the wonderful world of making Irish Whiskey.
The story unfolds from source to glass making this Distillery totally unique. We have enjoyed the same water source for over 400 years, we don’t make a secret of our ingredients, barley, yeast and water. We do NOT share the secrets of our Master Distiller or our Master Blender we simply let you taste the evidence of their amazing skill.
This is the most informative tour of any Distillery in Ireland. Centuries in the making take time to savour the range of products that has been Bushmills Whiskey since 1608
“We don’t produce Ireland’s best whiskey because we are 400 years old, we are 400 years old because we make Ireland’s best whiskey.”
Colm Eagan (Master Distiller)
