Bushmills

Irish whiskey brand Bushmills has partnered with Lowden Guitars to create an acoustic guitar made from copper and wood used in the whiskey-­making process.

The Bushmills x Lowden Black Bush Edition was made in association with Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance.

Alongside the barrel wood, Lowden Guitars used African blackwood and alpine spruce to craft the guitar – which took more than 100 hours to design and build.

This is the first time copper from the distillery has been used to make a musical instrument. Twenty-­five guitars have been created, each retailing at £9,800 (US$13,100).
