J & A Mitchell, Scotland’s oldest distilling family, opened their distillery in 1828 on the site of the previous illicit distillery of Archibald Mitchell. It is unique amongst Scotland’s distilleries in that all parts of the production process, from traditional floor malting to bottling, are carried out in the one location. It is the only distillery in Scotland to produce three different single malts, Springbank, Longrow and Hazelburn.
First distilled in 1973, Longrow is a double distilled heavily peated single malt produced at Springbank Distillery in Campbeltown. The malt is peat dried for up to 48 hours to give the whisky a unique Campbeltown-style smoky character. Less than 100 casks of Longrow are filled each year.
As this whisky is not chill filtered a natural haze may form when it is cold but this will disappear when the temperature returns to normal.
