Only 678 bottles are available exclusively from The Irish Whiskey Collection at The Loop, Dublin and Cork airports
Bushmills Irish Whiskey is bringing the 27-Year-Old Bourbon Cask from its 2021 Causeway Collection to travel retail.
Just 678 bottles of the limited edition will become available to Aer Rianta International (ARI) for The Loop, Dublin and Cork airports and online at theloop.ie.
The 27-Year-Old Bourbon Cask is a limited edition, cask strength (52.1% ABV) and non chill-filtered Irish single malt, distilled in 1994 and matured in third-fill bourbon barrels for six years.
It was then re-casked into first-fill bourbon barrels from Kentucky, USA, where it spent 21 further years. The result is a straw gold whiskey, with key notes of crème brûlée, cinnamon spice & tropical fruits.
ARI CEO Ray Hernan said: “At ARI, we are committed to innovation and ensuring that we are providing travellers with special, premium purchases they can only find at our airports. We are delighted to be once again collaborating with Bushmills to bring another innovative, first to market to ARI exclusively.
“I’m sure this very special 27-Year-Old Bourbon Cask will be a huge hit with our customers.”
Roy Summers, Head of Global Travel Retail at Proximo, added: “We are thrilled to announce the launch of the 27-Year-Old Bourbon Cask as a global travel retail exclusive at The Loop, Dublin and Cork Airports.
“The popularity of Irish whiskey continues to soar, and our focus is on providing exciting experiences for our customers and on giving travellers something they can’t find in their domestic markets.”
