Bushmills Irish Whiskey unveils new Causeway Collection

Bushmills, thought to be the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, has announced the release of a new range of rare and unique single malt whiskeys inspired by the natural wonder of the Giant’s Causeway, crafted by Bushmills master blender Helen Mulholland and aptly named The Causeway Collection. 

The lineup features ten different cask-finished single malts available in nine different countries, and begins with the 2001 Feuillette Cask, which is exclusive to Great Britain. The ten single malt whiskeys includes country-specific bottlings that will reach the UK, France, Germany, China, Portugal, the Nordics and Global Travel Retail before the end of 2020.

The 2001 Feuillette Cask marks the first cask strength release, and first red wine cask-matured whiskey, ever to be made available by Bushmills in Great Britain; the liquid has been aged for over 17 years in Oloroso sherry butts and Bourbon barrels, before final maturation for over two years in a rare Burgundy feuillette cask.

Helen commented: “This launch represents a bold new step for Bushmills, one that not only honours the giants and generations before us but also the incomparable natural landscape in which it was forged. The whiskeys in this collection, all non-chill filtered and some of the first cask strength whiskeys to be released by us in over 15 years, are among Bushmills’ greatest treasures. We can’t wait to share them with the world.”

The Causeway Collection launches globally in 2020 and includes expressions finished in new American oak, Cognac, wine and fortified wine casks.

The Bushmills 2001 Feuillette Cask will be on sale in the UK from the 7th December, exclusively from The Whisky Shop. Only 168 bottles of the 2001 Feuillette Cask are available, bottled at cask strength 49% ABV, non chill-filtered and priced at £200 for 700ml.
