Key Information

Other Information

  • Age21 Year Old

Bushmills Malt 21 Year Old is an extremely rare single Malt Irish whiskey.

Only a very limited number of bottles are available every year.

It is matured for a minimum of twenty-one years in three different types of casks - Bourbon barrels, Oloroso Sherry butts and Madeira drums.

Bushmills malt 21 Year Old Madeira Finish is a perfect fusion between old and new - combining the expertise of malt distilling at Bushmills since 1608, together with the revitalisation of the tradition of 'finishing' whiskey in Madeira drums.

The whiskey is first matured in American bourbon barrels and Spanish Oloroso sherry casks for 21 years and upwards. The malt whiskey is then vatted and married for months in Madeira drums.

The end result of this very special maturing process is a rich and smooth old malt whiskey with a wonderful combination of aromatic malt, gentle wood and rich spiciness - a wonderful and intriguing complexity on the palate and perhaps the finest expression to date of Malt distilling that is Bushmills.
