Bushmills affection

Screen Shot 2015-06-22 at 10.03.06 AMYes another whiskey tweet tasting. And a fabulous one, I might add. A Bushmills tasting. 5 Beauties in one evening.

Bushmills is named after the city where it is distilled. It has two mills on the banks of the River Bush which runs past the distillery. Bushmills whiskey is still distilled in the Old Bushmills Distillery. This is the world’s oldest whiskey distillery with a license.
