WELCOME TO OUR TOP SHELF IRISH WHISKEY
Jameson Original Irish Whiskey
Founded in 1780 and produced at Midleton Distillery, Co Cork, by John Jameson and Son. Members of the family are still involved in the business, though in 1966 Jameson became a part of the Irish Distillers Group, who also make Bushmills. When John Jameson opened his distillery in Dublin in 1780 he was carrying on a tradition of whiskey making which had its origins in Ireland over a thousand years ago.
Today Jameson Irish Whiskey is world famous for its distinctive flavour and smooth characteristics. Triple distilled from the finest Irish barley and pure spring water and then matured in oak casks. Jameson carries the hallmark of quality, which has made it the best selling Irish Whiskey around the world.
Bushmill's Original Irish Whiskey
Bushmills Irish whiskey is the original and best known whisky from the Old Bushmills Distillery, the oldest licensed whisky distillery in the world. Its is a blend of single malt and single grain whiskey. Grain whiskey reserved for Bushmills is aged a minimum of five years in oak casks that are specially selected to bring out the golden hue and light. When mature this grain whiskey is blended with a single malt whiskey to balance the flavour.
The malt used in Bushmills mash derives its clean taste from the deliberate absence of peat used in the barley drying process. Irish whiskey distilleries kiln-dry their malt in a heat-fired, not peat-fired, oven. Lighter, no smoke and perfectly balanced, Bushmills is triple distilled for exceptional smoothness.
Bushmill's Black Bush Irish Whiskey
Black Bush Special Irish Whiskey is a rich, dark, 80-proof blend from the world's oldest licensed distillery, "Old Bushmills" distillery in County Antrim, Ireland.
It is comprised almost entirely of single malt whiskey, making it a choice selection of deluxe whiskey aficionados.
Malt whiskey that becomes Black Bush is aged up to eleven years in selection sherry-seasoned oak casks before being blended with a small portion of a special single grain whiskey to enhance the independant, non-conformist character of the malt. The malt used in the mash derives its clean taste from the deliberate absence of peat used in the malted barley drying process.
Coleraine Blended Irish Whiskey
A blend named after a defunct distillery attached to the town of the same name a few miles along the coast of Northern Ireland from Bushmills, whence the malt element of this blend is sourced. Not to be confused with the afore-mentioned defunct Coleraine distillery, owned by Bushmills, which closed in 1978, but which did exist as a very limited bottling single malt about fifteen years ago.
Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey
