Bushmills 10-year-old is a benchmark Irish Single Malt Whiskey worthy of the name.
Bushmills is one of the most popular and enduring Irish Whiskeys. Hugh Anderson registered the company in 1784 in the town of Bushmills and, after a few fits and starts, they have been in continuous operation and growing since 1885. Jose Cuervo purchased the Old Bushmills Distillery from Diageo in 2014, but the suits know to stay out of the way of Irishman crafting their Whiskey. Bushmills currently has six Whiskeys in their core line-up in addition to special editions and releases.
Bushmills 10 Year Old Single Malt has been called a "benchmark Irish Whiskey." It’s the one other Irish Whiskeys compare themselves against. It’s been awarded "Best Irish Single Malt" and has been given 92.5 points in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible — along with a bushel of gold medals from competitions all over the world. And on top of it all, it is an incredible value given it’s price point. It’s triple distilled and aged a full decade in ex-Bourbon casks — which accounts for the rich flavors of honey, vanilla, and milk chocolate.
Prominently pressed into the glass of each bottle of Bushmills Irish Whiskey is the date "1608." But, that’s not really when they started making Whiskey. The original land-owner — a Sir Thomas Phillips — received an official "license" from King James I to distill in 1608, but the Bushmills distillery was not built until 1784.
