Introducing a remarkable innovation in Irish whiskey production, the Bushmills Causeway 2002 Vermouth Cask Single Malt Irish Whiskey. Steeped in history, with a legacy spanning over four centuries, the Bushmills Distillery in Northern Ireland continues to create world-renowned spirits, extending their line of premium whiskeys with this exclusive release. An offering made for fans of high-quality spirits and those looking to elevate their tasting experience to a more premium tier.

The 2002 Vermouth Cask is a rare find, with a limited cask finished, non chill-filtered presentation, and a cask strength of 48.2% ABV. Each sip of this whiskey takes you on a journey to the Giant’s Causeway, a short distance from the distillery and a source of inspiration for centuries. Just like the Causeway's extraordinary hexagonal columns that form a series of steps, this whiskey represents a bold new chapter in Bushmills' history.

This exquisite offering is the world's first-ever Irish single malt aged in vermouth casks, having matured for over 18 years in oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels before being finished in these unique casks by Master Blender, Alex Thomas. This vermouth, a fortified herbal wine from Italy's Piedmont region, imparts an abundance of delicate summer floral aromas, such as rose petals and gentle herbaceous notes. Rather than merely finishing their whiskey for six months, Bushmills has added deeper waves of flavour by allowing it to mature in these vermouth casks for almost two years.

The final result is a sensational whiskey with ripe summer flavours, adding mouth-watering notes of mandarin orange and a deeper rich fruitcake sweetness. The nose tempts you with sweet vanilla spice and gentle floral aromas of herbs and rose petal, while the palate offers distinctive flavours of sweet honey married with mandarin orange, followed by fresh vanilla, dried fruits, and toasted almond. The finish is long, dry, and concludes with a rich fruitcake note. This whiskey is a giant in its own right, standing tall among the best of Irish single malts.

Established in 1608, Bushmills Distillery is a paragon of the global whiskey industry, celebrated for its smooth, uniquely warm whiskeys. Their meticulous triple distillation process and commitment to exceptional craft and passion ensure each bottle from Bushmills is a true tribute to Irish whiskey.

Whether you're an avid whiskey connoisseur, seeking an upgrade to a premium brand, or looking for the perfect gift, the Bushmills Causeway 2002 Vermouth Cask Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a choice that promises an unforgettable tasting journey. Purchase this exclusive whiskey online from us. Immerse yourself in the rich heritage and innovative spirit of Bushmills. Your palate deserves it.
