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 those corporate blokes knew 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.

It's no secret that Irish Whiskey has experienced a boom in recent years. Bushmills was one of only two distilleries in Ireland in 1972 until it was taken over by Irish Distillers. Bushmills is now in the hands of Jose Cuervo and celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2008.

Black Bush is a triple-distilled, malt blend of 80% malt Whiskey to 20% grain Whiskey. This Irish Whiskey is matured for around 8-10 years in former Oloroso Sherry casks, with rich, smooth notes of fruit, this dram is full of character and history. Bottled at 40% ABV, the blend won the top prize in its category at the World Whiskies Awards.
