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!

This special little decanter was bottled for the opening of the visitor centre in 1974. Modest in looks this rare little wonder has cracking reviews and has become a mythical dram in the whisky world!

Distilled: 1955

Bottled: 12.09.1974

No volume of ABV stated (Roughly 37.5cl)

Please note minor cracking to wax seal.

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
