Campbeltown

Campbeltown was once one of the most prolific regions in Scotland, sadly US Prohibition affected the area and until recently there were only 2 distilleries producing whisky. Campbeltown sits on the Mull of Kintyre and the single malt whiskies from the region reflect this with a slight coastal character. They are known for their dryness and often for their pungency. There are also a few peated releases, for example Longrow, which is produced at the Springbank, with Glen Scotia and Glengyle completing the modern day complement of distilleries.
