For 30 years, the Old Busman has strived to refine and improve the process that produces this spirit. A burning desire to produce something unique has driven a search for better and better taste, character and quality.
From simple beginnings, Bourbon NZ Ltd has grown into a boutique distillery. But it has not forgotten the early days and "Old Busman" is still double pot-stilled.
Made from the artesian water of the Horowhenua, filtered through sugar maple charcoal and matured with imported oaks, "Old Busman" is a rich-flavoured liquor with delicate aromas and full body. Savoured on its own or with ice, or enjoyed with mixers, it ensures the drinker a fun Kiwi experience with no regrets the next morning.
Currently, two varieties of "Old Busman" are available. The Gold Label is a 4 year old sweet mash aged on 2 varieties of oak, while the Black Label is a 7 years old corn whisky, aged on 5 varieties of oak to introduce differences that are obvious to the discerning palate.
Free Tastings of "Old Busman" New Zealand Spirit are available at all our outlets.
