Brewers of Ireland’s oldest whiskey, Bushmills, have announced their latest creations – two rare, small batch 16 and 21 year old single malts. The whiskeys are available to buy at Heathrow, Belfast and Frankfurt airports.
Bushmills Irish Whiskey Master Distiller Colum Egan said: “To craft malts of this age and quality calls for all our expertise and knowledge. By carefully nurturing a small number of casks in our warehouses so that they age in the optimal conditions, we can draw layers of exquisite flavours from the wood, ensuring they are balanced with the distillery character of the Bushmills spirit made from 100% malted Irish barley. With a heritage of more than 400 years of whiskey making in Bushmills, we know that only a combination of patience and great dedication to our craft makes such great whiskey possible. There is strong demand for Irish single malts, so we’re delighted to release these rare expressions for the ultra-premium end of the Irish whiskey category. Bottled at 40% ABV, they are both limited editions and will be available only from specialist independent retailers and on-trade outlets.”
