In 1973, the team at Springbank Distillery in Campbeltown started experimenting to see if Islay-style malts could be produced on the mainland. Codenamed Longrow", minute amounts of this peated single malt have been produced annually since 1990, and just a handful of cases make it the US each year. Whispers of smoke intermingle with roasted marshmallows and rich fruit on the nose as iodine notes and waves of smoke wash over the palate and linger on the finish leaving you yearning for more. Be the first in your Scotch circle to get your hands on this rare beauty."

Now home to only 3 distilleries, Campbeltown was once known as the "whisky capital of the world" with as many as thirty active distilleries. Of the three remaining today, Springbank reigns supreme with their lightly-peated malt. In 1973 Springbank's chairman challenged the status-quo and tasked his team with crafting an Islay-style malt (heavily-peated) at their facility. The experimental whisky, codenamed Longrow, was a great success and has built a cult following, and in 1992 it was made part of the permanent lineup. Production remains limited to just a few thousand cases each year, with a minute amount making it stateside.
