Longrow is a heavily-peated single malt whisky made at Springbank distillery in Campbeltown, which also produces the Hazelburn and Springbank malts and takes its name from the lost Campbeltown distillery founded by John Ross in 1824, but which closed in 1896.
First distilled in 1973, Longrow is the result of an experiment carried out by Springbank’s chairman, who set out to prove that an Islay style single malt could be produced on the mainland. Longrow’s heavy, smoky character is thought to reflect the style produced in Campbeltown during its Victorian heyday. Its identifiable flavour is derived from the heavily-peated malted barley, but also from Springbank’s direct-fired wash still and slow cooling through the spirit still’s worm tub.
As with all bottlings from Springbank distillery, Longrow is non-chill-filtered, free from added colour and bottled on site at 46% unless otherwise stated.
