So this is the next in a series of collaborations between one of Northern Ireland’s longest standing institutions, Bushmills Irish Whiskey and a group of creative individuals who strive to be that little bit different from the norm, creating something unique and inspiring, much like Bushmills Irish Whiskey do themselves.

July saw a musical get together with Guitar master craftsman George Lowden and renowned guitar instructor Paul McMordie for “Whiskey and Strings”.
This month “Whiskey and Muses” sees Bushmills Irish Whiskey team up with 2 local artists, urban artist Dean Kane aka Visual Waste and tattoo artist Connor Curran from Crooked Mile Tattoo,
The launch event is on Thursday 24th August from 7pm at the very new, hip and intimate venue of The Gallery, Dublin Road, Belfast.
At the launch Dean will create a piece of art right in front of your eyes with a live painting demo while you enjoy a wee speciality Black Bush cocktail, doesn’t sound too bad does it?! Dean will also launch his new exhibition which will run from 25 – 31 August.
Connor Curran has designed a limited edition “Bushmills X Crooked Mile Tattoo” t-shirt which looks pretty cool if you ask me. You’ll find this worn by bar staff across Northern Ireland as they serve you a wee 10 year single malt (my fave of the Bushmills family) or whatever it is you fancy.
I really love the t-shirt design and will be entering the competition to win one of 50 they’re giving away, which you can also do here or by clicking below and going to the competition page.
So if you’re into your local Whiskey, local art or both, you can register for the launch event at http://answerthecall.co.uk/ and going to the events page. Places are limited so get registered asap and I will hopefully see you there!
#Answerthecall is about local people, musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, writers and creative minds who have dared to be different. The series is a pretty inspiring one and you can read some fantastic stories about these folks at the Bushmills website and who knows, it may inspire you to answer your call.
