We had a very enjoyable outing to Bushmills Distillery on the 3rd November. A very big thank you to Allan Douglas for organising this. Everything went smoothly. When we arrived in Bushmills Allan met us and took us by the lovely scenic route along the river to the Distillery. On arrival we treated ourselves to lovely coffee and scones in their cafe. Our group was divided into two groups for the tour and both guides were excellent. We were shown the whole process from how the grain is treated right through to the bottling and boxing. It was very interesting to see how they still use traditional methods but have also incorporated some modernisation. At the end of the tour tasters were available and were fully enjoyed.
After this we walked to the lovely restaurant Tartine, who had opened especially for us. We all enjoyed a really delicious lunch and excellent friendly service. We had a comfortable journey.
