Old Bushmills Distillery
This is where to find out how Irish whiskey is made, with a guided tour through the live production process from grain to glass at Ireland’s oldest working distillery, which got its licence in 1608. You can see everything from the malted barley being ground and mashed, to the maturing whiskey casks piled high – and find out about where the 'angel's share' of the whiskey really goes, before you sample your own share of the water of life.
