There are a few Scottish distilleries that still malt their own barley but Springbank is the only distillery which malts 100% of its own barley, using the traditional floor maltings. The whole production process: malting, milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturation and bottling, happens on the one site in Campbeltown. This is unique in Scotland
Bottler Springbank
Three malt whiskies are produced at Springbank distillery, each with its own character. Springbank which is 80% of production, is lightly peated and distilled two and a half times. Longrow is more heavily peated and distilled two times. Hazelburn is unpeated and distilled three times
Distillery Springbank
Springbank distillery is the oldest independent, family-owned distillery in Scotland. Legal distillation began in 1828. The chairman is Hedley Wright, the great, great grandson of John Mitchell, the first legal distiller of Springbank whisky.

Colour/Appearance Copper
Tasting Notes Nose
From the outset, this dram incorporates some of the signature Springbank characteristics with earthy and maritime aromas. Hints of cracked black pepper and a fruity fragrance of dried pineapple develop over time.
Palate
Oily and creamy. Sweet flavours are balanced by the salty elements of the whisky; vanilla, fudge and caramel with a sprinkling of finely crushed sea salt. There are notes of milk chocolate and sweet honeycomb.
Finish
Gentle peat smoke endures alongside the distinct maritime influence. Freshly baked salted pretzels, warm vanilla custard and a tang of orange zest.
