Bushmills Irish Whiskey has partnered with The Whisky Club (TWC) to bring the first release of Bushmills’ limited edition finishes to Australia, 2006 Marsala Cask.

The Causeway Collection is an outstanding single malt distilled in 2006 and finished in Marsala Casks; available exclusively for TWC members.

The Causeway Collection, a series of limited-edition single malts from The Old Bushmills Distillery, the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world, brings to life a series of rare and innovative cask finishes never seen or sipped before.

The Bushmills 2006 Marsala Cask is a full-bodied, golden spirit. The long years of maturation lend this single malt a delightful smoothness and velvety finish on the palate. Notes of vanilla, spice, and dried fruit shine through, derived from the artful aging practices – over 12 years in a combination of oloroso sherry and bourbon casks before finishing in marsala casks for an additional 18 months.

The tipple is a triple wood matured, non-chill filtered fusion of fruits and spices. It’s bottled at 47.2% ABV with no colour added.


“With over 400 years of whiskey-making heritage, we always say, ‘We’re not good because we’re old, we’re old because we’re good’,” said Helen Mulholland, Master Blender at Bushmills.

“Bushmills has never compromised on quality to create its signature smooth taste and famous house style. The global launch of The Causeway Collection represents a bold new step for us, an exciting time as we, at last, share these rare cask finished editions.”

This limited-edition release can be accessed by subscribing to The Whisky Club ahead of October 4.

“Our vision is to bridge the gap between distillery and consumer, to give our members a taste of something special that you just can’t get anywhere else, direct from the maker to the drinker,” said Bertie Cason, Co-Founder of TWC.

“The Causeway Collection 2006 Marsala Cask is a prime example of this and we’re thrilled to be working with Bushmills on this delicious history-making malt, made exclusively for our members.”
