The Old Bushmills Distillery is set to commence tours on the 3rd May 2022 following a prolonged period of closure due to the global pandemic.
The date was exclusively revealed this evening during a virtual Bushmills Giants event with Master Blender Alex Thomas where Causeway Coast Community attended.
Further details will be provided on the Bushmills website in due course.
The Old Bushmills Distillery is listed as the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world. Using water drawn from the River Bush over beds of basalt rock, the 400-year-old distillery is the home of a craft passed through the generations. While most Irish whiskey distilleries switched to corn when a tax on barley was introduced in the 1850s, Bushmills stuck to malted barley, creating top-quality single malt whiskey throughout its history
