A very interesting release from Bushmills. This whiskey was distilled on 1st August 1990 and aged for a total of 30 years. It was finished in new American oak casks and bottled as part of The Causeway Collection.
The Old Bushmills distillery in Northern Ireland is the world's oldest licensed whiskey producer, granted a license to distil whisky in 1608. The modern iteration of the distillery was built in 1885, following a fire. Old Bushmills was bought by the Irish Distillers group in 1971, giving them a full monopoly on the production of whiskey on the island, lasting until 1987 when Cooley was opened by the Teeling family. Diageo later bought the site in 2005, before trading it 9 years later with Casa Cuervo in exchange for a stake in one of their Tequila brands.
Bottled exclusively for The Irish Whiskey Collection duty free shops at Dublin and Cork airports.
