Our Whiskeys

With its license to distill granted in 1608, Bushmills is Ireland’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery making it the home of the original single malt whiskey. To this day, all Bushmills whiskeys are either bottled as 100% single malt whiskey, or added to lighter grain spirits to make our blended whiskeys.

Red Bush

The newest whiskey from Ireland’s oldest whiskey distillery, RED BUSH is aged in bourbon barrels for an intense bourbon finish, combined with the signature smoothness of triple-distilled Irish whiskey. RED BUSH is a well-rounded whiskey that is as versatile as it is complex. Best served neat to kick off the night.

Black Bush

A whiskey icon in Ireland, Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey combines a high amount of malt whiskey matured in former Oloroso Sherry casks, with a sweet, batch-distilled grain whiskey. This unique recipe means Black Bush has rich, fruity notes and a deep intense character, balanced by an incredibly unique smoothness. It’s best enjoyed neat, or over ice.

Original

With a recipe unchanged since 1888, there is no more a classic whiskey for a classic cocktail than Bushmills Original. Combining our pure single malt whiskey and a lighter grain whiskey, you’ll notice its rich, smooth warming taste almost instantly, just as generations have done before. Pre-prohibition cocktails deserve a pre-prohibition whiskey.

10 Year

Bushmills Single Malt Whiskey 10 year old is triple distilled from 100% malted barley and matured for at least 10 years in Sherry and bourbon-seasoned casks which gives it its honey, vanilla and milk chocolate aroma. It can be served neat, over ice or if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, try it frozen.

16 year

Bushmills Single Malt Whiskey 16 year old is aged for 16 years in a combination of Oloroso Sherry and bourbon-seasoned casks, then matured for several months in port wine barrels. The unique maturation process gives this single malt its distinct notes of juicy fruits, nuts and spice, as well as a hint of ruby redness. It’s best enjoyed neat.

21 Year

Bushmills Single Malt Whiskey 21 year old is aged for a minimum of 19 years in former Oloroso Sherry and bourbon-seasoned casks, then transferred into Madeira casks for a further 2 years. The result is the pinnacle of aged Irish whiskey, awarded ‘Best Irish Single Malt 2013’. It has huge depth that interweaves dried fruit flavors with spicy, aromatic maltiness and subtle nutty raisin notes.
