Bushmills '1608' 400th Anniversary 75cl / US Import

A special edition bottling of Bushmills released in 2008 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of a licence being granted to distil aqua vitae in Antrim, originally granted in 1608.

Jim Murray gave this a huge 94 points in his Whisky Bible.

The Old Bushmills distillery in Northern Ireland is the world's oldest licensed whiskey producer, granted a license to distil whisky in 1608. The modern iteration of the distillery was built in 1885, following a fire. Old Bushmills was bought by the Irish Distillers group in 1971, giving them a full monopoly on the production of whiskey on the island, lasting until 1987 when Cooley was opened by the Teeling family. Diageo later bought the site in 2005, before trading it 9 years later with Casa Cuervo in exchange for a stake in one of their Tequila brands.
