Like Whiskey? Like Music?
The Old Bushmills Distillery, where handcrafted Irish Whiskey has been made for centuries, is launching a whiskey and music festival – ‘Bushmills Live’. Their two-day event, 20th and 21st June this year, will be the first ever staged in an Irish Whiskey distillery.
The distillery, on Ireland’s north coast, will become a venue for a festival unlike any other staged before. An already strong association with the contemporary music scene was forged through a series of global partnerships that saw artists such as Bon Iver, Chromeo, Theophilus London, Foy Vance and Iain Archer appear in advertising campaigns.
‘Bushmills Live’ promises a ‘money can’t buy’ experience – tickets won’t go on general release, instead, fans of Bushmills Irish Whiskey can win the chance to attend by entering a competition on the Bushmills Facebook page – facebook.com/bushmills1608.
To stand a chance of winning, submit a photo of yourself and a friend and explain why you should be in the audience for ‘Bushmills Live’.
As well as listening to great music, those fortunate enough to win a ticket to the festival will also have the opportunity to make their own blend of Bushmills Irish Whiskey.
Speaking at the festiva launch eventl, Colum Egan, Master Distiller at the Old Bushmills Distillery said: “I am so excited about ‘Bushmills Live’ and the fantastic line-up of talent that will be coming to the distillery this summer!
