This was an old fashioned distillery visit. Unlike the Jameson/Guinness tours, you are in the distillery. We went in the off season so there was no wait.

Bushmills is the oldest "Licensed" distillery in the world, first licensed in 1608. The tour includes tasting and it is a good experience even for non Whiskey drinkers (like myself). Tour guides are fun and everyone is friendly.

it's £40 sterling for the 12 year old single malt it's excellent and you can try it before you buy it if you would like to print your own label it's another £5 but worth it !
