One of Scotland’s oldest distilleries, Bowmore was opened by a local merchant in 1779. The distillery’s location on Islay’s Lcoh Indaal shore lends to the cool temperatures and peaty soil ideal for making whiskey. Since its establishment, Bowmore has continuously produced its own floor malted barley, which creates a balanced, flavorful spirit.
