Limited availability and a large cult-like following have made the single malts from Springbank impossible to find. Don’t fret, we’ve got your back. This 18-year-old is loaded with gobs of ripe raspberry, rhubarb and raisins on the nose with leather and spice on the palate while sherry, oak and a touch of brine linger on the incredibly long and complex finish. Fair warning, this one’s not going to be around for long.
Springbank Distillery is unique. It is the oldest independent family owned distillery in Scotland. Founded in 1828 on the site of Archibald Mitchell's illicit still, the Springbank Distillery is now in the hands of his great, great, great grand son, Hedley G. Wright. Owned by Mr. Wright's J&A Mitchell & Co Ltd, Springbank is the only distillery in Scotland to carry out the full production process on the one site. 100% of the traditional floor malting, maturation and bottling is done at the distillery in Campbeltown. It produces the most hand made whisky in Scotland, with traditional production methods being used throughout the process, and human involvement at each and every stage and is the only distillery in Scotland to have never chill-filtered, nor do we add any artificial colourings to any of our single malts. It is the only distillery in Scotland to produce three different single malts, Springbank, Longrow and Hazelburn, using three different production methods.
