Bushmills Whiskey Distillery in Northern Ireland is the proud home of some of the worlds most famous whiskeys. Visitors can sample whiskey, do a distillery tour, purchase gifts such as whiskey glasses, and of course whiskey! 🙂
It is not just the oldest whiskey distillery in Northern Ireland and Ireland, but it also happens to be the oldest whiskey distillery in the whole world. The history of this distillery started back then when King James I granted the landowner and governor of county Antrim the license to distill in 1608 and that was exactly when the journey of this distillery started.
