Irish chandler Michael Morris presented ‘Black Bush Alight’, a whiskey and candle making workshop in Drury Buildings on 27th and 28th November – the latest instalment of the #BlackBushStories event series hosted by Bushmills Irish Whiskey.

Michael, who founded The Bearded Candle Makers, shared his inspiring career story with guests before presenting a hands-on masterclass where attendees had the chance to make their own Black Bush-inspired keepsake candle.

An educational tasting session on some of Bushmills’ best loved whiskeys kicked off the night, along with the chance to sample some specially-created Black Bush winter drinks throughout.
