The Causeway Collection hits the right flavour notes for someone who knows their whiskey craft. The Causeway Collection of rare, limited edition Irish single malt releases is inspired by the natural wonder and mythical tales of the UNESCO World Heritage site the Giant’s Causeway.
Just a stone’s throw from Old Bushmills Distillery the Giant’s Causeway has been a source of inspiration to Bushmills’ Master Distillers for centuries. The Causeway’s extraordinary hexagonal columns, each unique but perfectly locked together, much like the unique and extremely rare casks of Irish single malt selected to create The Causeway Collection.
Bushmills rich heritage in craftmanship and storytelling inspired George the Poet (pictured above) to write ‘Singular Tales’, an ode to Bushmills and the joy of sharing stories whilst enjoying an award winning Irish single malt.
For the Irish single malt whiskey collector in your life!
The Causeway Collection 1991 Madeira Cask is aged for over 13 years in a mix of oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels before going through an unrivalled maturation period of 15 years in first-fill Madeira casks. The resulting Irish single malt is rich with a deep, sweet, fruity character and overtones of creamy pralines and black coffee, ideal for sipping in front of the fire.
This is the perfect gift for luxury Irish single malt collectors – it’s made to be enjoyed too of course!
