What's rare is wonderful: Bushmills Irish Whiskey unveils two brand-new single malts

.

It goes without saying that some whiskeys deserve a special place among the collection. They’re the bottles that only get opened on high days and holidays, if even at all, and the ones that make you appreciate the artistry and craft that goes into every drop.

Bushmills Irish whiskey has released two new exclusive single malts. The 25 and 30-Year-Old single malts that have been released this year are two of the rarest small batch whiskeys ever produced under the label.

It’s an exciting time for the brand, as the launch coincides with their 415th anniversary and the opening of their new state-of-the-art Causeway Distillery and €68 million investment in single malt whiskey. The cutting-edge 39,000 sq ft facility, situated on the same site as the Old Bushmills Distillery will double the on-site whiskey production capacity making Bushmills one of the largest single malt production sites in the world.

Just as the distillery will blend high tech with an ancient craft to produce whiskeys enjoyed all over the world, the new ultra-rare releases will help bring the label’s heritage into an entirely new space. You only need look at the maturity of these single malts to get a sense of how much craft has been invested in them, but it’s when you look beyond the surface that you start to understand what they offer those who appreciate premium whiskey.

Both offer entirely different flavour profiles and aromas, yet share much of the gentle sweetness and complexity so synonymous with an Irish single malt. They are available now in select retailers across Ireland, but you can learn more about these two brand-new single malts below.

Bushmills 25-Year-Old

What’s in the bottle: Finished in ruby port pipes for up to 21 years, but only after it has matured in the Old Bushmills Distillery for four to six years. The 25-Year-Old is a 46pc ABV, non chill-filtered single malt, with a distinctive red gold colour.

Description: With a glass of Bushmills 25-Year-Old in front of you, expect to be greeted with aromas of ripe hedgerow dark fruit mingled with honey and gentle toasted wood.

As for the flavour profile, it has been described as a rich and complex liquid with intense notes of ripe hedgerow dark fruit aromas mingled with honey and gentle toasted wood.

RRP: €850

Bushmills 30-Year-Old

What’s in the bottle: Originally distilled in 1992, this whiskey was finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks for an incredible 16 years after being matured for 14 years in bourbon casks and sherry butts, resulting in a stunning dark rich gold colouring. It’s the oldest expression to have ever been released as part of Bushmills’ core range, and this non chill-filtered single malt is also bottled at 46pc ABV.

Description: On the nose, the 30-Year-Old single malt promises sweet aromas of raisins, figs, prunes, and dates entwined with treacle toffee, soft clove and sweet spice.

In terms of what to expect upon your first sample, it is characterised by signature sherry aromas of dried fruits and a deep and perfect PX complexity. It has a velvety texture with notes of sweet dates, raisins and figs followed by praline and orange peel before developing into vanilla and warm pastry.

RRP: €2,000
