now here’s a real taste of home. County down’s own has done good. The blend of his guitar and a melody are as smooth as a Bushmills.”


AWAY: MEGAFAUN - The Longest Day

At the end of the longest day what better than a glass of Bushmills? A tune hand crafted by old friends and bandmates of Justin Vernon and one I'll be happy to listen to long into the night.”

We love seeing new faces at the old distillery WE LOVE SEEING NEW FACES AT THE DISTILLERY

The Bushmills distillery has had its fair share of visitors these past few hundred years, now over 120,000 each year (and that’s not counting our resident ghost, The Grey Lady). And of all the living souls I have encountered, every one of them leaves with a smile on their face and a spring in their step, mind you, that might just be from the fumes as we hand craft our Bushmills.

So why not experience it yourself and be transported into a world that hasn’t changed much since we first opened our doors way back.”

The Mixing Room
See where it all begins, where we mix malted barley with the river bush’s crystal clear water; the beginning of a great union.”
The magic starts to happen as we add yeast to the process to produce alcohol.”
The Distillery Itself
This is where you’ll meet the stars of the old bushmills distillery – our unique copper pot stills that give Bushmills its distinct taste and character.”
The Cask Room
Piled high with maturing Bushmills, you’ll instantly be taken with the aromas of madeira, port and bourbon barrels and the heady spanish sherry casks.”
The Blending Lounge
Our blending team has, in my opinion, one of the best jobs in the world – creating the distinct Bushmills recipes that we all enjoy.”
The Bottling Plant
This hive of activity and noise is where you’ll see first hand that we are truly one of the few grain to glass distilleries in the world.”
Gift Shop & Restaurant
Own a piece of Bushmills history and even create your own personalised bottle, before settling back for a snack or light lunch in our restaurant.”
Let's Talk Spirits
Our resident ghost, THE GREY LADY, walks (or floats) through the old distillery. Rumour has it she lived at the back of the distillery and her husband used to walk their dog there. One night he never came back and she searches for him to this day.”
