Amid glitz and the glamour Bushmills Distillery was put on the world stage April 22nd - by the Bank of Ireland.

 

In case anyone was unaware of the world famous Bushmills, the Bank of Ireland’s Governor came to Belfast to honour his favourite whiskey.

 

From yesterday a new Bank of Ireland £5 note bears a picture of the famous distillery with new £10 and £20 notes to follow next month.

 

Yesterday — in scenes reminiscent of Hollywood — the Bank of Ireland unveiled its series of new notes with a blaze of publicity.

 

Huge outdoor screens beamed the launch onto the bank’s HQ stopping hundreds of shoppers in their tracks.

 

The Bank of Ireland’s governor Richard Burrows said it was a special moment for him as back in 1972 he spent four years as the managing director of Bushmills Distillery.

 

He said: “I spent some very happy years on the North coast of Antrim and today we are celebrating the 400th anniversary of Bushmills Distillery.”
