A fabulous 10 year old Springbank, matured in bourbon casks as well as sherry casks, adding a wonderful depth of flavour. Slightly peated, it marries a complex mixture of maritime notes as well as a fresh and fruity balance. The definition of a Campbeltown classic.
Last year a visitor to Springbank described the experience as “…stepping into a Victorian distilling textbook”. You could think of it like a monastery or Amish farm house. We’ve met many seasoned whisky lovers who don’t know about Springbank, but then, it doesn’t follow industry fashions or court publicity. There are good reasons why this is presently one of the most interesting distilleries happening in the world of Scotch whisky today. Springbank is small – in fact, one of Scotland’s smallest distilleries. They’re also family owned. Both factors making Springbank inherently flexible. Small batches and experimental runs are their stock and trade. More importantly, they maintain complete control of the production process – from their own water source, to the floor maltings, through to a seventy hour fermentation which is one of the slowest in the industry.
