Bushmills Distillery

Originally granted a licence to distill way back in 1608, it wasn’t until 1784 a whiskey distillery eventually started at the site.

A fire in the building (an occupational hazard in distilleries) prompted an 1885 rebuild which still stands today as part of the ever expanding complex of buildings in County Antrim, part of Northern Ireland.

Bushmills today produces a popular range of blends,

and under current owners, Mexican drinks giant Jose Cuervo, a travel retail exclusive range of cask finished single malts.

Bushmills distillate also forms the basis of many third party blends & brands.

At one time Bushmills was one of only 2 distilleries on the island of Ireland. Both of them owned by the Irish Distillers Group.

Thankfully those lean years have gone and Irish Whiskey is expanding.

Casks Away looks forward to taking you to the very North of Northern Ireland to visit this wonderful distillery, as well as the nearby Giant’s Causeway!

Get in touch to be part of the adventure.

Boann Distillery

Boann Distillery sits in an impressive building of glass, copper & wood overlooking the open fields of County Meath on Ireland’s East Coast.

It’s a family affair.

The Cooney family to be precise.

They have built up over 40 years experience in the drinks trade in all areas of the industry.

Now the distillery hasn’t been commissioned as yet, but in the meantime an impressive array of sourced malts & blends under The Whistler brand have been gathering awards & appreciation.

What is also impressive is the large brewery & bottling plant that sits behind the distillery wall.

Operating as the Boyne Brewhouse they already produce an award winning array of tasty beers, stouts & cider.

A visit to this combined brewery & distillery wouldn’t be complete without sampling some of the fine locally produced foods of the nearby historic Boyne Valley in the soon to be finished Stillhouse Bistro.

Casks Away can’t wait to take you there!

Sláinte.
