Bushmills Irish whiskey lead spirit sponsor for new Evening Standard stories festival in association with Netflix.

Bushmills Irish Whiskey, the pioneers of Irish single malt whiskey, from the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, have partnered with the Evening Standard and Netflix to support the brand-new Stories Festival.

The three-day event will see distinctive festival programming, established narrators and fresh voices tell compelling stories across written word, audio and screen from 24th-26th September at London’s Picturehouse. Bushmills has recently launched the Singular Tales campaign in partnership with George the Poet, to toast the unique tales that make up our lives and encourage people to reconnect as they share their own stories, over a bonding glass of award-winning handcrafted Single Malt Whiskey.

Bushmills will be serving up bespoke cocktails for celebrities, participants and distinguished guests at the Stories Festival launch party on 23rd September. The Irish Whiskey brand will then be the solus spirits sponsor for the dedicated poetry section on 26th September with a Single Malt tasting – during the adults only time. The session will be supported with a screening of George the Poet’s new evocative poem inspired by Bushmills' rich history in storytelling, craft and sense of community, while people enjoy their whiskey.

A stellar cast of famous speakers will also be sharing their musings, from Will Young on his memoir How to be a Gay Man to Line of Duty writer, Jed Mercurio on his latest graphic novel, Sleeper. Other highlights of the festival include Ed Balls, former model Jack Guinness and author Daisy Buchanan. More names to be announced.

The Singular Tales campaign was born from Bushmills’ passion for sharing experiences and stories. Each cask of Single Malt Whiskey tells its own tale with remarkable flavours and different levels of maturation, that are only bottled when they have reached a harmonious perfection. Bushmills whiskey balances artistry and craft informed by days gone by and the desire to push boundaries and innovate.

The Evening Standard Stories Festival will take place from 24th-26th September with tickets available from: www.picturehouses.com/stories

You will also find the current Bushmills whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, Amazon and Master of Malt
