Founded in 1779, Bowmore® is the oldest distillery on Islay. Its maturation warehouse is the oldest in the world and its handcrafted single malt whisky is defined by time and inspired by its home place.
Time is defining at Bowmore® and they tirelessly harness the power of time to shape its whiskies. The distillery's adherence to traditional production methods helps to shape the character of our fruity and smoky single malts. Today, it is amongst one of a few distilleries which still produces its own floor malted barley, hand-turned by a traditional wooden malt shovel and hand drawn machinery. Water for the whiskies is specially drawn from the Laggan River, with its rich peaty overtones - the same Islay peat that fires the malt-drying kiln.
Bowmore® Distillery's proximity to the sea is also vital in determining the final character of its spirit and gives a hint of sea air to the character. The legendary Bowmore® No. 1 Vaults is where most of the whiskies spend their long lives resting quietly in the cool, dark, damp cellars below sea level, oblivious to the waves thrashing the vault's sea-facing wall.
Matured in oak casks, previously used for bourbon, sherry or claret, over time developing rich and mellow flavours until the expertise of its whisky makers deems them ready for bottling. It is this combination of peat, barley, sea breeze, water, wood, people and tradition that makes Bowmore the exceptional single malt it is today.
Time is marked on each and every bottle of Bowmore, proudly and boldly as a marker of where and when each one's journey began. It is their story of time. This is Bowmore; the Art of Time since 1779.
