The Bushmills Original is produced by the Bushmills, a distillery so important for the Northern-Irish industry that its image was included in the new banknotes of this country as a tribute to its 400 years of existence. In 2010, this whiskey was the winner of multiple awards which testify of its high quality. Since 1608, when King James I gave the founder Sir Thomas Phillips the license to distillate, this company has not stopped sharing with the world a bit of its cultural tradition. More than whiskey, each bottle of Bushmills contains a bit of the richness and traditions of its home region.

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
