PRODUCER: The Old Bushmills Distillery is located in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, and owned by Casa Cuervo of Mexico. Bushmills uses water drawn from a tributary of the nearby River Bush.

COUNTRY: United Kingdom
PRODUCTION DETAILS: Winner of Best Irish Single Malt Whiskey at the World Whiskies Awards 2007; of Best Irish Whiskey (Double Gold Medal) at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2009; and beloved globally, Bushmills 10 Year old is perfectly balanced and aged. It is drawn from 100% malted barley, triple-distilled in copper pot stills, then aged in American bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks for a minimum of ten years. If you add a drop or two of water, there are lovely flavours of mandarin orange and Greek yoghurt.
Bushmill's history starts in 1608, when King James I. granted Sir Thomas Phillips - landowner and Governor of Antrum - a license to distill. In 1784 the distillery is registered and the Pot Still becomes its trademark. The first big difference adds in the 1850's, when a malt tax is introduced. Because of this tax many distilleries changed their recipes, while Bushmill's didn't. The brand was unstoppable, although many obstacles - such as a big fire, prohibition and World War II - made life hard and decreased or even stopped production for a while.More about the Producer
