An Irish tradition and a
"License to Distill." It was in 1608 that King James I granted the Bushmills region of Ireland an official license to distill. In the small village of Bushmills, settled on the banks of the river you'll find the oldest working distillery in Ireland. A place where family and friends have worked for generations, in a small Northern Irish village that for over 400 years has kept to the philosophy that hand crafting small batches is the way to produce beautifully smooth tasting Irish whiskey.
