“Picking up a haul of 32 top awards has been the perfect ending to a big year for us. In the past few months, we’ve launched a new product, BUSHMILLS Irish Honey, in the U.S. staged Bushmills Live - a handcrafted whiskey and music festival - at the home of BUSHMILLS; and collaborated with a range of world-famous artists such as Snow Patrol, Bon Iver and Elijah Wood.”

Bushmills Master Distiller, Colum EganBUSHMILLS Master Distiller, Colum Egan, said: “It has been an incredible year already for us here at Bushmills and we have been thrilled with each and every award that has been bestowed on our beloved whiskies.

“We spend a lot of time here at Bushmills handcrafting each of our whiskies in small batches – that’s our secret to creating the best quality Irish Whiskey and the smooth taste that is our house style. We’ll certainly be enjoying a glass to celebrate!”
