How about 400 years since the original license to distill Whiskey?
 
The Bushmills Distillery claims to be — and is almost unanimously considered to be — the oldest licensed distillery in the world. In 2008 Bushmills celebrated the 400th anniversary of the original license to distill Whiskey granted to the Bushmills area in 1608.
 
Bushmills 16 Year Old Single Malt is matured in three different types of cask — American bourbon barrels, Spanish Oloroso Sherry butts and Port pipes — each of which contributes extra nuances to its flavor.

Irish Whiskey became the most renowned Whiskey and most popular Spirit in the 19th century after the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
Irish Coffee recipe: 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3-4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey, heavy cream - slightly whipped.
In 2008, the bank of Ireland issued a new series of Sterling banknotes with the Old Bushmills Distillery illustration on one side.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
