What’s it all about? Bushmills Irish Whiskey is hosting an exclusive foraging and cocktail making masterclass where you can learn how to forage in London and create cocktails using natural, foraged ingredients.

The unique foraging and cocktail making masterclass will be the brand’s second event in its series of “Bushmills Black Bush Stories” workshops taking place throughout 2019. Each workshop seeks to shine a light on and celebrate talented craftspeople across the UK whose passion and skill chime with Bushmills’ own product story.

The evening will see participants taken on a guided foraging tour in East London, before learning how to use the ingredients they have sourced to create their own unique and delicious whiskey cocktails. Guests will also be treated to a special whiskey tasting session and given the chance to try out the full range of Bushmills whiskeys, including Original, Black Bush, 10 Year Old, and 16 Year Old.

The masterclass will be hosted by the whiskey connoisseur, television presenter and award-winning drinks writer, Neil Ridley. Joining him will be John Rensten, the country’s leading urban forager and author of The Edible City, alongside Bushmills’ whiskey ambassador, Donal McLynn.
How: Places are limited to 40 people and tickets cost £15. Must be 18 years or older to attend. To apply, go to

Background: Bushmills Irish Whiskey is crafted in small batches at the Old Bushmills Distillery in the village of Bushmills, Country Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is Ireland’s oldest working licensed distillery – making triple distilled malt whiskey and producing both blended and single malt whiskey of the same name. This is at the heart of all Bushmills Irish Whiskeys and creates a unique combination of smoothness and richness.

#BlackBushStories: Bushmills Black Bush Stories is a series of events celebrating the stories and crafts of independent, spirited and extraordinary talent across the UK. The series sees the brand team up with an exciting and eclectic range of collaborators whose passion for their crafts chime with Bushmills’ own product story. The foraging and cocktail making masterclass is the second event in the series and follows a cheese and whiskey pairing workshop which took place earlier in the year. Further #BlackBushStories events will be announced throughout 2019.
