Only 690 bottles of Bushmills 33 Years Old Port Cask will be available via World Duty Free’s specialist World of Whiskies stores at Heathrow Airport, UK, priced at £1,245 (US$1,500) per bottle.

The non-chill-filtered whiskey has been bottled at its cask strength of 53.3% ABV.

Alex Thomas, Bushmills master blender, said: “It is truly a privilege to work with such rare whiskeys in The Causeway Collection. They are the fruits of over 400 years of Bushmills whiskey-making tradition, each expertly created and nurtured over decades.

The Causeway Collection is a celebration of our passion for single malts, and these special whiskeys are our greatest treasures. At Bushmills, we continue to innovate and create new expressions to excite the whiskey community.”

The 33-year-old whiskey was filled into fortified wine casks from northern Portugal on 19 April 1989. Tasting notes include dark fruits such as blackcurrants and blackberries.

Paul Martin, Dufry category manager for liquor in the UK, noted: “We know that in travel retail consumers are always looking for something a bit different or unique and this most definitely ticks that box. We expect it to be a great success.”

In June last year, Bushmills released a whiskey inspired by the hit TV show Peaky Blinders.
