It was interesting (if a little cold and mechanical) and the whiskey was great. However, these guys are already making plenty of money - surely £7 is a little steep for a tour of the facilities and a shot of whiskey.

A visit to a distillery was just what the doctor ordered on a wet Antrim morning. The guide was very informative and the tot of Irish Honey in the 1606 bar afterwards went down a treat.

I took friends from Australia on The Bushmills Distillery tour which was very informative and well worth a visit. It was made all the more enjoyable by our guide, Dolores, who explained the processes in great detail. Her knowledge was thorough in all aspects of the distilling of whiskey and the history of the distillery. Would strongly recommend you make time to visit as it was great value for money.

I went on the Distillery tour for the first time on November 6th, and it was a very good tour to do. From the start of the process, the aroma's through, right through to the bottling process, I enjoyed the the experience.
