Ask any guitar maker or whiskey distiller worth their mettle and they’ll tell you that the wood they use in their craft has a significant impact on their end product. For whiskey, that’s in the flavor and aroma. With a guitar, it’s the sound produced. And since drinking and music have pretty much gone hand-in-hand for as long as they’ve existed, it’s no surprise that a crossover would elicit something truly special. Meet the Bushmills x Lowden F-50 whiskey cask guitar.

The centuries-old Irish distillery has partnered with George Lowden (a master luthier and a fellow Irish native) and his team to create this incredible work of art. Each guitar features wood from actual Bushmills whiskey barrels in the appointments – namely the custom back inlay, bevel, bindings, rosette, and 12th fret inlay. The back and sides are crafted from Ancient Bog Oak, while the top is built from Sinker Redwood – a rare type of tonewood reclaimed from the bottom of rivers. Just remember: while beautiful to look at, these unique instruments were built to be played and will only sound and look better with time.
