Quick Overview

Bowmore Distillery, one of the oldest in Scotland, has stood on the shores of Loch Indaal since 1779. This location, along with traditional production methods, greatly influence the overall outcome of the Scotch. Water from the Laggan River, rich Islay Peat, and the Distillery's own floor malted barley are used to produce this quality spirit, which is then matured in Spanish and American oak casks. The Bowmore Distillery sits at the edge of Loch Indaal where the briny breezes of the sea blow directly across and into the warehouses full of Bowmore whisky barrels. This means that at least some of that salty brine is bound to make its way into the casks and set its imprint into the flavour. The distillery itself contains two pairs of stills, six Oregon washbacks, and it is one of the few remaining Scottish distilleries to produce its own malt on its own malting floor. The location of the distillery next to Loch Indaal, and the peated barley produced under Bowmore’s own malt drying kiln have been linked to the unique flavour and character of the whisky know as Bowmore.
