Made using traditional production methods in each and every step – meaning Springbank’s whisky is the most handmade in Scotland. Unlike any other distillery in the country, 100% of the process is carried out on one site, giving them unrivalled control over the quality of the whisky.
First distilled in 1973, Longrow is the result of an experiment carried out by their chairman, who set out to prove that an Islay style single malt could be produced on the mainland. Today, this heavily peated, wonderfully smoky whisky is available in multiple bottlings and occasional single cask releases.
This Single Cask was distilled in November 2007, and bottled in August 2019. Aged 11 Years in 1st Fill Sauternes Hogshead, it was bottled at 56.6% ABV. Only 246 bottles in total.
