Tours of Bushmills and Guinness are both interesting, but quite different from each other. One is the countries oldest continuously licensed distillery in the world and the other is . . . Guinness. Here are the highlights:
Licensed to distill by King James in 1608, Bushmills Distillery is the oldest continuously licensed distillery in the world. Located in a small village in Northern Ireland, it follows the philosophy that hand crafting small batches is the way to produce smooth tasting Irish whiskey.
Daily guided tours take place throughout the day. Check their website for official times: Bushmill’s Distillery tours.
Hubby was looking forward to our tour of Guinness. It was possibly top on his Ireland wish list. The tour is self guided, interesting, and fun. The tour ends with a sample of stout (or a soft drink for kids or those of us who don’t drink stouts), and then there is the gift shop to visit.
