Bushmills Irish Whiskey has marked the return of its #BlackBushStories campaign for 2019 by announcing a collaboration with specialist tea makers, Suki Tea.
The collaboration will see co-founder of the Irish tea company, Oscar Woolley, join Bushmills to host a series of whiskey and tea blending masterclass events across Ireland in April and May.
Black Bush Blended will take place at Drury Buildings, Dublin, on 30th April and 1st May, and in Galway on 2nd May at Tribeton. Guests will take part in an educational tasting session on Bushmills’ Irish whiskeys, led by the Bushmills Brand Ambassador, before hearing Oscar’s story on how he turned a love of tea into a career. Attendees will then enjoy a tea tasting session and finish the night creating their own personalised tea blends. Specially created Black Bush drinks, including a tea-based cocktail, will also be served throughout the event.
The collaboration between the two Irish brands has also resulted in a limited edition, Black Bush inspired, loose leaf tea designed by Oscar. Taking influence from Black Bush, Oscar has created a blend with aromatic, warm spices and a finishing flavour of sweet, dried fruit.
Ten Black Bush Blend gift packs (including a tin of the limited edition Black Bush Blend, a bottle of Black Bush, a Suki Tea x Bushmills enamel mug and a black stump teapot) are available to win at blackbushstories.com.
