As well as hosting their first ever music festival in June, Diageo’s Bushmills Distillery is co-hosting the Bushmills Salmon and Whiskey Festival later this year.

Due to take place 21-22 September, the new festival is intended to encourage tourism and investment in Bushmills, which is billing itself as the ‘Gateway to the Giant’s Causeway”.

Tours of Bushmills Distillery and nearby McNaughton House will be available to festival-goers.

The Ballmoney Times quoted Councillor Sharon McKillop as saying: “The festival will showcase our local produce, services and village life. It will include live music throughout the day and guided tours of MacNaughton House and Bushmills Distillery for individuals wishing to sample the world famous produce of Bushmills.

“On behalf of the Bushmills Traders Association I would urge the local community and district to give this event their full support”.

Event Details

Organised by 2 local whisky enthusiasts, Chris Knight and Neil Rowley; we wanted a way to give fellow enthusiasts, and new comers alike, the chance to taste new whiskies from a wide range of distillers from around the world, along with some fantastic offerings from independent bottlers.

There are 2 types of ticket, an Admission ticket and a Masterclass ticket. A Masterclass ticket MUST be accompanied by an Admission ticket.

With the increased popularity of gins over recent years, we also wanted to raise people’s awareness of the fantastic products now available. There will be a number of gins available at the festival, giving you a chance to try new gins from some of the many artisan distillers.
