Winning bid: £680.00
Lot number: 073-1964

The oldest distillery on Islay, Bowmore has been described as the Grande Dame of the island. It still has it's own floor maltings which make up about 30% of their requirements. Their No. 1 vaults are the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland and the only one below sea level.

Only 200 bottles were produced (the staff got 30) so 170 for the mortals. Hardy souls queued, some all night, and, as usual, the Bowmore boys brought out shortbread and drams.

Distilled: 1985

Bottled: 2012

52.3% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 93 / 200
