The Bowmore Distillery

Bowmore is a pioneering house and the oldest licensed distillery on Islay. The distillery have been refining their craft for over 240 years, and we still does to this day. Own proprietary malt barns, hand-turned barley, and perfectly timed fermentation periods are what set the whisky apart from other less handmade products. In addition, all casks are hand-selected, with every single one being nosed before it is filled with new make. This care and attention to detail is what creates the complex balance of not just Smoke, but also rich fruit and sea salt which is so characteristic of the timeless house style. This is the reason why Bowmore ages like no other, the reason why it is the world’s most collectible Islay malt today.
