Bowmore was the first licensed Islay distillery and has stood on the shores of Loch Indaal, a sea loch opening out into the Atlantic Ocean, since 1779. To this day, the distillery still operates in traditional ways, honouring the origin whisky-making techniques. Bowmore is still hand crafted today.
Working with the finest quality oak casks, and a tradition that’s been passed down through generations for over 240 years. This heritage is based on the use of the soft water from the nearby River Laggan and barley malted in proprietary malt barns. It’s in Bowmore's legendary No. 1 Vaults, the old stone warehouse that sits on the edge of the loch, that the magical character of Islay and centuries of tradition patiently combine to create a whisky that stands out for its complex balance of mild Islay smokiness, maritime minerality, with an abundance of fresh stone fruit notes.
