First distilled in 1973, Longrow is a double distilled, heavily peated single malt.

The first distillation was carried out as an experiment when the Springbank chairman set out to prove that it was possible to produce an Islay-style single malt whisky on the mainland. Not too hard a stretch - you can see the island from Campbeltown.

This experiment produced a whisky so special that Longrow was distilled again a few years later and has become an important part of the company's portfolio, with regular distillation having taken place since 1992.

The barley used in the production of Longrow is entirely peat dried, giving the whisky a wonderfully smokey, peaty character.

This bottling was released for the Springbank Society.
