About Bushmills 29 Year Old Pedro Ximenez Cask Single Malt Irish Whiskey

The history of Bushmills is a storied one, steeped in history. In 1608, King James I of England granted Sir Thomas Phillips — the governor of Bushmills, County Antrim in Northern Ireland — a license to distill on his territory. Even in those early years, before the Old Bushmills Distillery Company was officially established (Hugh Anderson did so in 1784, and registered the first-ever trademark for the pot still), historical accounts show that a great quantity of whiskey was produced there. And though several events — including a disastrous fire in 1885, as well as World War II — halted production at the Old Bushmills Distillery, the distillery determinedly fought on. Bushmills remains an icon in Irish Whiskey, its picturesque facilities a popular tourist destination.

The distillery was purchased by Isaac Wolfson at the end of World War II. Then the Irish Whiskey industry dried to a trickle. Bushmills was one of only two distilleries in Ireland in 1972, until it was taken over by Irish Distillers. This gave Irish Distillers complete control of whiskey production in Ireland. In June 1988, Irish Distillers was bought by French liquor group Pernod Ricard, and then in June 2005, the distillery was bought by Diageo. Bushmills is now in the hands of Jose Cuervo and celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2008.

This expression is a wonderfully mature 29-year-old Irish single malt. The whiskey was triple distilled in 1992. It was then left to mature for more than a decade in hand-picked bourbon casks. It was re-casked in 2004 and finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, before being bottled at a cask strength of 106 proof, without chill filtration. Seeing how the spirit spent more than half of its life in sherry casks, it’s a rich, sweet, and fruity whiskey with notes of dried fruit, praline, orange zest, vanilla, toffee, and clove.
