Founded in 1825, the Verrerie Cristallerie d’Arques – originally a small family business – initially made a name for itself as one of northern France’s industrial showcases before emerging over the years as an international group and a world leader in tableware. Renamed Arc International in 2000, the rise of the company is closely linked to that of a visionary family who, over the years, has contributed its ambition, values, and stability and who has made technological innovation the key factor behind the company’s expansion.

At Bushmills, the unique whiskey-making tradition lives in Ireland’s oldest working distillery.
The first official recorded evidence of whiskey being made in Co. Antrim goes back to 1608. Bushmills, as a distillery, in the town of the same name, was recorded as registered company in 1784. And that’s when the Pot Still became our trademark.
After recovering from burning down in 1885, we started to export to America and Asia through our own steamship, the S.S. Bushmills.
In 2008 we celebrated the 400th anniversary of the original licence to distil, granted to the Bushmills area in 1608.
