Bowmore 12 Years
The first recorded mention of Bowmore Distillery dates from 1779, but speak kindly to a few of the older islanders and they’ll maybe whisper a rumour or two that distilling started here some time before that.
Certainly Bowmore’s founder, the merchant David Simpson, bought the land in 1766. Exactly what happened in the years in between is anyone’s guess!
When it comes to whisky heritage, Bowmore Distillery is unrivalled. We continue to hand down the traditions, skills and expertise that were crafted in the earliest days of Scotch whisky.
