New Red Bush from Bushmills matured in bourbon casks for US

Bushmills Irish Whiskey has launched Bushmills Red, the latest addition to the range of malt–rich, blended whiskeys. Matured in bourbon casks for a refined and exceptionally balanced flavour, the new spirit appeals to both bourbon enthusiasts and those new to Irish whiskey.

Bushmills Red Bush, the first in the United States, is a testament to the rapid growth the Irish whiskey category has experienced in America in recent years.

While we’ve been innovating with our aged whiskeys for centuries, we’re excited to embark on a journey with the millennial drinker,” says Colum Egan, Master Distiller at The Old Bushmills Distillery. “Maturing the whiskey exclusively in first fill bourbon barrels creates a mildly sweet and extremely smooth spirit that will resonate with frequent bourbon fans and first time Irish whiskey drinkers.”

Bushmills Red Bush is a smooth blend of triple distilled Irish single malt and fine Irish grain whiskey. On the nose, the amber spirit offers intense aromas of toasted oak and vanilla. The palate is medium bodied with hints of caramel and nutty flavours. It is a balanced, accessible Irish whiskey with a subtle sweet finish, drawing new consumers to the character and flavour profile unique to Bushmills Irish Whiskey.

The distillery, best known for its signature style of smooth, malt–rich spirits, is situated on the north coast of Ireland and holds the title of Ireland’s oldest working distillery.

Bushmills has offered a generous range of triple distilled blends and single malts for over 400 years and has remained bold and unwavering along the way. “Bushmills Red Bush personifies the gritty Irish character and adds a sense of adventure and fun to our portfolio, further defining the confident, courageous and independent spirit we’ve seen for generations at Bushmills,” adds Egan.

Among the first of the Irish whiskeys to be imported to the US, American drinkers fond of whiskey and other brown spirits have enjoyed the range of characterful smooth spirits from Bushmills since the 1800s. Red Bush is a new, versatile Irish whiskey best enjoyed neat as a shot or with mixers like cola, soda and ginger ale.

Bushmills Irish Whiskey is crafted at The Old Bushmills Distillery, Ireland’s oldest licensed distillery, at Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The brand portfolio includes a range of quality blended and fine single malts. Bushmills is one of few distilleries in Ireland to use 100 per cent malt barley to handcraft triple–distilled whiskey in small batches. This is at the heart of all Bushmills whiskeys and creates a unique combination of smoothness and richness.
