Bushmills

Bushmills is a holy place for whiskey fans. On a guided tour through the Bushmills Distillery you can learn a lot about whiskey. For example that the Irish whiskey is distilled three times whilst the Scottish whisky is usually only distilled twice. In case you are wondering about whisky and whiskey–only Scotch is spelled whisky. Whiskeys from Ireland, the USA or elsewhere in the world must be spelled with an e (whiskey).

At the end of the tour you can try one of the Bushmills whiskeys and buy great souvenirs in the gift shop. How about a barrel of whiskey?
