Springbank distillery is the oldest independent, family-owned distillery in Scotland. Legal distillation began in 1828. The chairman is Hedley Wright, the great, great grandson of John Mitchell, the first legal distiller of Springbank whisky.

There are a few Scottish distilleries that still malt their own barley but Springbank is the only distillery which malts 100% of its own barley, using the traditional floor maltings. The whole production process: malting, milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturation and bottling, happens on the one site in Campbeltown. This is unique in Scotland.

Three malt whiskies are produced at Springbank distillery, each with its own character. Springbank which is 80% of production, is lightly peated and distilled two and a half times. Longrow is more heavily peated and distilled two times. Hazelburn is unpeated and distilled three times. 

Nose 

A  burst  of  heather  and  freshly  mowed  grass  followed  by  honey,  pear  skin  and  wood  shavings.  Hints  of  butter, cheesecake,  fresh  cream  and  digestive  biscuit.


Palate

Elegant  and  gentle. Butterscotch  and  vanilla,  sugar  cane  and  molasses  develop  as  the  influence  from  the  rum casks  engulfs  the  palate  with  apricots, peaches  and  paprika


Finish

A  soft  smokiness  is  present  in  the  background.  Toffee  apples,  raisins  and  oat  biscuits  emerge.  In  the  foreground;  peppercorn,  almonds  and apricot  jam are  prominent.
