The Old Bushmills Distillery is devoted to the production of the finest quality Irish whiskey. Whiskey making at Bushmills draws on centuries-old distilling history, including the first licence to distil whiskey, granted for the county of Antrim in 1608. These skills and tradition still live on today at the Old Bushmills Distillery, and shine through every drop of our whiskey. Another unique aspect of the Old Bushmills Distillery is that malt distilling, blending, maturation and bottling are all carried out on the same site. Our passion for whiskey-making and in-house expertise in all stages of the whiskey production process are the critical factors in the quality and complexity of the Bushmills family of whiskeys.
