Jamie Donaldson Wins Freedom of The Old Bushmills Distillery

Jamie Donaldson and Colum Egan

Jamie Donaldson has been awarded the freedom of the Old Bushmills Distillery by Bushmills Master Distiller, Colum Egan.

The Welshman was given the accolade after winning the 2012 Irish Open at Royal Portrush Golf Club. Master Distiller Colum Egan hand selected a Bushmills Single Malt Irish Whiskey especially for the occasion. The whiskey is housed in a bespoke cabinet made from barrel oak used in the whiskey making process.

The unique bottle of Bushmills Single Malt Irish Whiskey will have pride-of-place in the Old Bushmills Distillery and will only ever be opened for Jamie Donaldson himself.

Colum Egan said: “I want to congratulate Jamie Donaldson on his success this week. Like Royal Portrush Golf Club, the Old Bushmills Distillery is one of the icons of the North Coast of Ireland.

I look forward to welcoming Jamie to the Distillery, to open this handcrafted whiskey for him and to toast his success at the 2012 Irish Open with a very special glass of Bushmills.”

Bushmills Irish Whiskey was the official whiskey of the 2012 Irish Open.
