In the small village of Bushmills on the banks of the River Bush, you’ll find the Old Bushmills Distillery. This week you may also have found three grinning Cows, freshly ‘educated’ with a full tour of the distillery with Master Distiller Colum Egan.
Members of the Cow team recently visited Belfast and the nearby Old Bushmills Distillery, where they learned all about the rich legacy and heritage of Bushmills Irish Whiskey. Along with a full tour of the distillery where our Cows were taught the secrets of the distillation process, barrel making from one of the country’s only remaining coopers, and learned to draw a sample of whiskey straight from the cask (a very important life skill), they were also treated to a Tasting Experience. If only every education could taste so good and leave the student in such good spirits!
The oldest working distillery in Ireland, Bushmills has been handcrafting small batches of Irish whiskey for centuries. Home to Bushmills Original, Bushmills Black Bush and a range of older single malt varieties, Bushmills make whiskey in much the same way as they always have, ensuring that the taste of Bushmills today is
the same as it has been all through the centuries.
