Bowmore Aged 12 Years Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 40% Age: 12 Years Old Country: Scotland
The Bowmore Distillery was founded in 1779 and is positioned on the beautiful rugged shores of Loch Indaal in the town of Bowmore. The distillery is owned by the new partnership of Beam Suntory and produces over 2 million litres of spirit each year. This Islay distillery, still to this day, retains the traditional floor method of malting barley allowing the distillery to offer a very unique product. Nowadays most distilleries use more modern efficient methods to malt barley using mechanical equipment with expert ‘maltsters’.
Bowmore single malt is loved all over the world due to a very special peaty salty flavour is has on the palate. The whiskies they produce are of great charm and perhaps not as well noticed as some other whiskies on the island but they have plenty of peat smoke and a refreshing finish.
Did you know? The Bowmore Distillery converted one of its warehouses into the villages swimming pool. They used the waste heat from the distillery to warm the waters, this allowed for a very pleasant swim.
The water source for the Bowmore Distillery is found at the Laggan River which collects most of its water from the rivers Kilennan, Barr and Duich. Bowmore was one of the first legal distilleries on the island of Islay and is situated in the centre of town. The distillery attracts many tourists to the town making Bowmore town centre a hard place to get a parking space and find a shop (or a bar) that’s not bustling with life.
Bowmore aged 12 years is complex yet perfectly balanced, it reflects the raw essence of Bowmore – thrashing waves, windswept landscapes and generations of tradition. Bowmore 12 Year Old has received much critical acclaim; the late, great whisky writer Michael Jackson proclaimed it “remarkably long and complex”. We like to think of it as vanilla ice cream at a beach bonfire.
