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!

Distilled: 1997
