Bowmore’s Single Malt Whiskey has been distilled since 1779 on the wondrous island of Islay, off the west coast of Scotland.  It is among some of the finest whiskey in the world! They still make their whiskey today, the same way they did way back in 1779 too!

The Whiskey is made from barley, water from the Laggan River and malt that is smoked in a peat fired kiln.  Once the ingredients have been combined, the spirit is sent to Bowmore’s No. 1 Vaults, which are not only the oldest in Scotland, but is the only one below sea level.

Auchentoshan & Rob Roy

The only Single Malt Scotch Whisky to be triple distilled, Auchentoshan has just launched Three Wood, smooth zesty, yet sweet with vanilla and a touch of the spicy.  It is matured in 100 year old American Bourbon oak barrels.
