Loch Bushmills

This is a fine tune we use to play. It is from Czech band Dún An Doras.
I wrote it down to notes for someone a while ago.
Basic chords:
part A: Em, Bm7, C
part B: Cmaj7, Bm7 (ending C, Bm, Am)

Loch Bushmills

The name grates. :-~
Unless there is a Bushmills in Scotland of which I am not aware, the place which is synonymous with the best whiskey in the world is in Ireland and therefore any stretch of water would be called a "lough" not "loch". There isn’t a Lough Bushmills.
Why did you select the name?

well.. I looked it up on band’s website (dunandoras.cz, recordings, album sweet&sour, 7th track)

their comment:

We are far from promoting any particular brand, but if you forget a tune you composed the previous evening, nothing helps remembering more than a glass of good whiskey. We have always held remarkable the peculiar tension between the Scottish and German meaning of the word „loch“, in this case we would prefer the German one considering the fact that the tune was born in the remote village Horní Lochov near Jičín.
