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 is the third release in Bowmore's 50-Year-Old Vault Series. This Bowmore was aged in one single Oloroso Sherry cask for over 52 years and was some of the first spirit to pass through their then new steam heated stills. Presented in a hand crafted Scottish hard Oak cabinet.
