The Teeling family are currently bottling whiskey's from Cooley, and this first release is a small batch of casks that have been bottled at 46% without chill filtration or colouring.

Bushmills Original Irish Whiskey is the original Old Bushmills Distillery whiskey. Bushmills Original is a blend of single malt Irish whiskey and Irish grain whiskey. Grain whiskey reserved for Bushmills Original is slowly matured in American oak casks that are specially selected to bring out the golden hue and light, yet distinctive, characteristics of the whiskey. When mature, this grain whiskey is blended with our aged malt whiskey. The malt whiskey imparts its rounded, fresh fruit and delicate honey aromas to the blend, combining perfectly with the fresh, light citrus note from the grain whiskey to give Bushmills Original its pleasant balanced character.

The legendary story behind Tullamore Dew first began far back in the mists of time before the 10th century when the Irish originated the magic of 'Uisce Beatha' or whiskey. Golden Irish barley and pure crystal clear water are at the heart of the legend. Following triple distillation the legend grows with the slow maturation for many years in oak casks while the rich and mellow taste of Tullamore Dew develops. You can enjoy Tullamore Dew on its own, with ice, with soda or water.
