Official tasting notes (Whisky Sponge facetiously comments)
“A clear and remarkable aroma reminiscent of bushels, ledgers, braces, handwriting, moustaches and prohibition. There is no finer drop available – as certified by suitably repressed men who work in laboratories”

About Springbank Distillery
Springbank was established in 1828 on the site of Archibald Mitchell’s illicit still. The distillery is one of the last surviving producers of Campbeltown Single Malts perched on the edge of Campbeltown Loch about 3 hours’ drive west of Glasgow. It produces three distinct types of single malt scotch whisky; Longrow, Hazelburn and Springbank. The difference is achieved by using Springbank’s three stills in different combinations as well as adjusting the peat levels. Nearly all of its whisky is sold as a single malt, with little of it finding its way into blends.
