As part of the 2018 release, Bushmills has announced an increase in availability of the 16 Year Old Single Malt by 100 per cent, in a direct response to the 25% increase in demand of its premium malts over the last year.
Commenting on the launch, Colum Egan, Master Distiller at Bushmills Irish Whiskey, said: “As the largest malt Irish whiskey brand in the world and one of the first distilleries to create a single malt whiskey, we are delighted to release these rare expressions for the ultra-premium end of the Irish whiskey category. With almost 40 years crafting our Bushmills 16 & 21 Year Old Single Malts, we know that only a combination of patience, dedication and experience in our craft has allowed us to maintain the same great consistency of flavour and taste over the years.”
Bushmills 16 Year Old Single Malt - 2018 and Bushmills 21 Year Old Single Malt - 2018, will be later this month from specialist retailers, for the respective RRP’s of £75.00 and £145.00.
