Bushmills & Bodega

10/20/2011 08:54:00 PM
Bloggery media rep DanDan swung by Beehive to hang out with the folks from Bushmills.  Here's what he had to say: 

I had the chance to stop by Beehive to check out the expansion of the Bushmills “Since Way Back” initiative to Boston.  The idea for “Since Way Back” is pretty interesting and draws from the rich history of Bushmills Irish Whiskey and celebrates when great products are created through close collaborations between friends.  Here in Boston, Bushmills has recognized the founders of local sneaker shop Bodega as just such artists.  I chatted with the founders and later swung by Bodega, with its hip secret entrance masked behind a convenience store at 6 Clearwater St, just off Mass Ave (I'll send along my impressions of Bodega in a couple days!)

At the event itself, Peter Zimmermann, the Master of Whiskey of Bushmills guided us through some of the best Irish Whiskey I've had.  From the blended Original through to the 21 Year Old Single Malt, every offering from Bushmills reflects the care and quality you'd expect from one of the oldest names in spirits.  Personally, I'm partial to the Bushmills 16 Year Old Single Malt, an amazing malt whiskey aged for 16 years in sherry and bourbon seasoned casks before being matured for a final several months in port wine barrels; the result is pretty incredible and very unique.

After trying each of Bushmills' whiskeys, we joined the main event and had a fun time drinking Bushmills cocktails (I was a big fan of the Bushmills Old Fashioned) and hanging out with friendly, inspiring people including Zimmermann, as well as the founders of Bodega:  Jay Gordon, Dan Natola and Oliver Mak.  Next time you're at a bar looking for a great whiskey to relax over, Bushmills is definitely worth trying out.
