Surely there are few locations more evocative than the shores of Lochindaal, an area positively steeped in rich Scottish folklore. It's no wonder then that Bowmore has a whiff of magic about it (or perhaps that's just the whisky). The oldest distillery on Islay, Bowmore still retains its own floor maltings, and while they can no longer meet all of the busy distillery's requirements, they still contribute a third of the malt used in every mash.
Just because something is old, doesn't mean it's old-fashioned, and Bowmore's eco friendly heat recovery system not only cuts down on those pesky bills, it also heats the town swimming pool!
Only 300 bottles of this 1989 vintage bottle were available for the 2014 Feis Ile; so as the queue began to form in the wee hours of Bowmore's open day, distillery staff took pity on the patient festival goers, and again handed out "golden tickets". This allowed 300 lucky people to enjoy all the fun of the Feis, safe in the knowledge they had secured a bottle of this precious liquid.
