The Bushmills Prohibition Recipe Limited Edition Irish Whiskey is a deep amber color with a dense bouquet of barley, fresh oats, honeycomb, dried fruits and baking spices. The palate is big and bold, bursting with flavors of rye bread, orange marmalade, almonds and cinnamon, finishing long and full with zesty citrus oils and vanilla bean.
The Old Bushmills Distillery, officially registered in 1608 in County Antrim, Ireland, is the world's oldest licensed whiskey distillery. Today, on that same site, The Old Bushmills Distillery crafts three unique whiskeys - Bushmills Irish Whiskey, Black Bush Special Irish Whiskey, and Bushmills Malt.
The result of an historically prohibitive tax placed on malted barley by the English crown, Irish Whiskey is most often produced from a combination of un-malted barley and other grains. Whereas most other Whiskeys are twice distilled, Irish Whiskeys are distilled three times in a column still and must mature in oak barrels for a minimum of three years. These intricate production steps combine to make them lighter, smoother and more approachable than other styles.
