Bushmills Distillery swept the boards at the prestigious 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. As well as winning 'Best Whiskey in the World' (which of course we already knew!) Bushmills scooped 100% gold accolades in the global competition. These awards come on top of winning three ~World Whiskey Awards in London earlier that year. Situate two miles from the Giant's Causeway, you can sample the award-winning whiskey for yourself. This is the oldest distillery operating in Ireland today. Distilling "Uisce Beatha", Gaelic for whiskey, since 1608, the distillery offers comprehensive guided tours of the distilling process and tasting of the range of whiskeys on offer. Gift shop on site.
