Granted a license by King James I to distill in 1608, Bushmills is the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world. In 1784, the Old Bushmills Distillery became official. Hugh Anderson registered the Old Bushmills Distillery and the Pot Still became its registered trade mark. It is still the distillery's mark of genuine distinction today. Located in Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, Bushmills Distillery uses water drawn from Saint Columb's Rill, which is a tributary of the River Bush.

Over 400 years later, whiskey is still being made in Bushmills, thanks to experience & craft passed down from generation to generation.

Immediately one of the longest-aged Irish whiskeys available everyday, Bushmills 25 Year Old builds on the legacy of the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery with an exceptionally robust spirit. The predominant influence of maturation in first fill ruby port pipes produces a complex and rich whiskey, brimming with notes of ripe and juicy dark fruits. 

Triple-distilled from 100% malted barley, the first release of the Bushmills 25 Year Old was filled into Bourbon barrels and Sherry butts on 22nd November 1995 before being recasked into only 27 “First-Fill” Ruby Port Pipes on 25th October 2001. 

The three different woods each imprint their own unique characteristics onto the Bushmills 25 Year. Old Sherry Butts: 500L European oak casks are toasted light and medium before being seasoned with Oloroso sherry, which provides a robust base. Bourbon Barrels: 200L charred American oak bourbon barrels, infuse a light and mellow well-roundedness with vanilla and caramel notes. Port Pipes: 650L first-fill European oak casks are toasted before adding the custom ruby port, so more wine is absorbed for character rich with fruit and soft spice.

Nose: Rich and complex. Intense ripe hedgerow dark fruit aromas mingled with honey and gentle toasted wood offer the first glimmer of the age of this well-rounded whiskey.

Taste: Sweet almond tones followed by caramelized cherries, plums and blackberries delight the taste buds before developing into rich dark chocolate mingled with sweet spices and finishing with honey and damson--simply luxurious.

Finish: The remarkable ever present warm oak, port sweetness and gentle spice continues to flourish long after the last drop has glided down inviting you to taste this exquisite single malt again and again.
