Bushmills Irish Whiskey Celebrates Father's Day with Bushmills X Lowden Guitar Tribute with Singer-Songwriter Ciaran Lavery

Heritage and tradition is the single quality that defines the spirit of Bushmills® Irish Whiskey. It is the legacy built from generations of proud, hardworking men who have passed their knowledge to their songs. And with Father's Day approaching, men across the country are looking for the perfect way to honor their fathers.

Bushmills® Irish Whiskey- the oldest licensed distillery in Ireland- in partnership with guitar manufacturer and Northern Irish icon, Lowden Guitars have launched a new line of limited edition guitars made from Bushmills® Irish Whiskey barrels and ancient bog oak. The finished result combines hundreds of years of cooper and luthier craftsmanship with three types of wood that are steeped in heritage and tradition.

The wood used for the guitars were personally handpicked by Lowden Guitars founder, George Lowden. For four decades, Lowden Guitars has pioneered the art of creating acoustic guitars, selecting only the very best quality of wood. In the spirit of tradition, George Lowden is passing his guitar making skills to his sons, ensuring that the Lowden legacy lives on for generations to come.

To commemorate Father's Day, Bushmills® Irish Whiskey has released an acoustic performance of Northern Irish singer-songwriter, Cairan Lavery, debuting the limited edition Bushmills X Lowden F-50 guitar with an acoustic rendition of the song, "Tell Them All". Recorded at the Old Bushmills Distillery, the song is written from the perspective of a son listening to his father's wisdom.

The spectacular performance resonates perfectly with the Bushmills X Lowden collaboration, which celebrates fathers who pass their craft and legacy to the next generation.

"As a musician, I believe it takes time for a guitar to find its true voice", says Lavery. "What's truly stunning about the Bushmills X Lowden guitar is that from the moment I picked it up I could see, hear, and feel the quality craftsmanship and wood that went into making it. It was as if someone had played it for twenty years and handed it to me. That's pretty special and I can only imagine what it's going to sound like in twenty years."
