In 1608, King James granted Sir Thomas Phillips a license to distill in the town of Bushmills in County Antrim. For over four centuries through good times, bad times, fire, war and prohibition, Bushmills Irish Whiskey has persisted. You can taste the resilience and character. Bushmills' original spirit is a blend of triple-distilled malt whiskey and lighter grain whiskey made with water from Saint Columb's Rill and aged in American oak casks.

The bright gold whiskey has a nose that is vegetal and organic with aromas of grain, grass, blossoms, wood and vanilla. The flavor is sweet and slightly metallic with notes of copper, honey, sweet oats, elderflower and minerals. The finish is spicy and a little hot with lingering hints of brass, barley and cardamom.
