Licensed in 1608, Old Bushmills is Ireland's oldest working distillery. So why take the children? Touring an Irish whiskey distillery isn't just about alcohol. It's about potions and brews as well as history, science and economics. And because it's a working factory, it's a chance to see how things are made. Learn about fermentation and distillation. Discover how barley is mashed and liquid is bottled. Find out how taxes and prohibition impacted a business.
