Jamie’s got the bottle

Jamie Donaldson has been awarded the freedom of the Old Bushmills Distillery by Bushmills Master Distiller Colum Egan.

The Welshman has been given the accolade after winning the 2012 Irish Open at Royal Portrush Golf Club, meaning he’ll have access to a special bottle of Bushmills Irish Whiskey housed in a bespoke cabinet, handmade from oak used in the whiskey-making process. The bottle will have pride-of-place in the Old Bushmills Distillery and will only ever be opened for Jamie Donaldson himself.
 
Colum looks forward to welcoming Jamie to the Distillery, to open his prize for him and to toast his success at this tournament with a very special glass of Bushmills.
 
Bushmills Irish Whiskey was the official whiskey of the 2012 Irish Open and had exclusive whiskey pouring rights at the tournament.
