Following on from last year's very successful Bushmills presentation, Seamus Lowry will once again visit Dingle to update us on what is happening in our country's most northerly distillery. Officially founded in 1784 but rooted in a local distilling history that goes straight back to Irish whiskey’s very embryo, Bushmills already have plenty of history behind them and many of our members have cut their whiskeyphiliac teeth on the fabulous & legendary Black Bush blend while the core malts have long set the standard of what triple distillation can do for a well matured malt. But all that’s in the past. Since their acquisition by José Cuervo, the Antrim classic has been eager to showcase all it has to offer to brand new audiences abroad and to unveil some startling surprises for those of us at home who’ve known and loved them all along. With that exciting future in mind, it is our absolute pleasure to invite Bushmills whiskey guru and legend, Seamus Lowry to Dingle with a briefcase full of secret samples for a warehouse tour in a southern glass, poured right to the brim with a selection of what they’ve got aging in those northern casks!
