The Old Bushmills Distillery, where handcrafted Irish Whiskey has been made for centuries, is to host a landmark whiskey and music festival – ‘Bushmills Live’.
The two-day festival will take place on 20th and 21st June 2012 and it is stated to be the first ever staged in an Irish Whiskey distillery.
Some of the brand’s most famous fans will play a series of intimate gigs at the distillery which is situated on Ireland’s north coast. Age-old buildings where the art of distilling has been practiced for generations, will become venues for the festival.[ Also Read: Bacardi Invites You to Her Happy Birthday ]
The brand already has an association with the contemporary music scene through a series of global partnerships that see artists such as Bon Iver, Chromeo, Theophilus London, Foy Vance and Iain Archer appear in its current advertising campaign.
‘Bushmills Live’ will be a ‘money can’t buy experience’. Tickets for the event won’t go on general release; instead fans of Bushmills Irish Whiskey can win the chance to attend the festival by entering a competition on the Bushmills Facebook page. Entry opens on 17th March 2012 and closes on 27th April 2012.
To stand a chance of winning they will have to submit a photo of themselves and a friend and explain why they and their friend should be in the audience for ‘Bushmills Live’.[ Also Read: Glenmorangie for The Open Championship ]
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 launch of the festival, Colum Egan, master distiller at the Old Bushmills Distillery, said: “‘Bushmills Live’ will be a unique occasion and will bring the best of handmade music and the best of handmade Irish Whiskey together under one roof. Get entering and good luck!”
