About

Causeway Coast Foodie Tours is delighted to host you on a very special ‘The Spirit of the Bann’ river whiskey tasting experience; an ideal and unique opportunity to slowly savour distinctive colours and flavours, enjoy a warm glow and celebrate the beautiful blend of natural & man-made wonders our stunning Causeway Coast has to offer!  Where better to celebrate our unique food and drink heritage than via a journey on the River Bann alongside the beautiful site of Mountsandel, Coleraine?

You will retrace the voyages of our ancestors who settled here some 9,000 years ago; and travel by river with newly established local operators White River Charters, on their vintage vessel, ‘MV Kingfisher’.  This glorious wooden boat was built by the world-renowned Harland and Wolff shipbuilders in the historic Belfast Shipyard (of Titanic fame!) and has been beautifully restored and tailored to provide visitors with a truly first-class visitor experience. There are many home comforts on board including covered & comfortable seating, cosy blankets and plenty of good cheer. Exploring the River Bann from the comfort of this style of boat allows you to immerse yourself in nature and absorb the sights and sounds of the changing season where the wooded riverbanks present a burst of vibrant seasonal colours and wildlife.

Tim, the whiskey connoisseur, will introduce you to a selection of whiskies produced by Bushmills Distillery – the oldest, licensed, whiskey distillery in the world, along with a special whiskey directly associated with the local area, all rich and full of flavour, with a unique depth of character. Tim will explain tasting notes of each while highlighting colour, age, blends, casks, nose, aromas and flavour notes and his selection will provide a variety of autumnal flavours including toffee, maple syrup, caramel, fruits & spices.

These world class whiskies will be accompanied by a hand-picked selection of award-winning local produce including charcuterie, cheeses, dipping oils & home-made chutneys from around the Causeway Coast.

We invite you to wrap up warm, share our food & stories and experience the warm glow from the welcome and the whiskies! This is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with those who share your outdoor spirit!

Price includes;

– Whiskey tastings x 4 (tea/coffee will also be offered), selection of local produce tastings

– Your whiskey’s journey from grain to glass, and a history of Bushmills distillery will be recounted by a whiskey guide
