Bushmills Original is a classic Irish blended whiskey. The Bushmills brand has been around for more than four centuries for a reason. The catalyst that started everything is their original recipe. Triple-Distilled malt whisky is mixed with a light grain whisky and is matured in bourbon barrels for at least four years to craft a rich product that continues to win awards to date.
Bushmills Original will warm you, heart and soul. It is an extremely versatile spirit that is easy to drink. This is the perfect whiskey to enjoy on its own or to mix into a drink as part of a team. Fresh, crisp, and slightly spicy, this is a smooth and mellow product that you can put your trust in.
Bushmills has been producing a beautiful line of whiskeys ever since the distillery received its licence to operate from King James I back in 1608. With its iconic name that is known around the world, the brand has had a long time to make its mark. To that end, Bushmills is such an Irish institution that the Bank of Ireland decided to celebrate the company's 400th birthday by including a picture of the Old Bushmills Distillery on the back of its banknotes.

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
