#2 Irish Whiskey
Bushmills Irish Whiskey
The Old Bushmills Distillery in Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland is a popular tourist destination, with over 110,000 visitors per year. A license to distill in the area was granted to Sir Thomas Phillipps in 1608 by King James I, and the 1608 date is printed on the labels of the Bushmills brand whiskey. The Bushmills Distillery claims to be – and is almost unanimously considered to be – the oldest licenced distillery in the world.
Bushmills Original is a blend of triple distilled malt whisky and a light Irish grain whiskey that is aged for at least 5 years in used American bourbon an Spanish Oloroso sherry casks. The inviting whiskey is rich with spicy vanilla and oak notes that beg to be mixed in almost any drink you can think of.
#2 Irish Beer
Harp Lager was first produced in 1960 as a bottled beer by the Guinness company in response to the trend among drinkers in Britain and Ireland towards continental lager.
This classic Irish lager has a pleasant, buttery sweet aroma. Crisp and dry, Harp finishes remarkably smooth. Harp’s distinctive, refreshing taste has earned it six gold medals in the famous annual Monde Selection beer tasting competition. It is Northern Ireland’s number one lager.
