Spicy and fruity, Bushmills Black Bush gives you a lot of scope for creating cocktails. It has a distinctive nuttiness and roundness on the palate, which benefits from the whiskey — a blend of grain whiskey and fine single malt — being aged in sherry casks, resulting in a gentle sweetness and a versatility that sees it being used in an exciting array of cocktails.
