Description

Found in one of the most remote parts of Scotland, the Springbank distillery is still family owned. Situated on the western parts of Scotland on the Kintyre Peninsula, it is owned by J & A Mitchell & Company.

They also own Glengyle Distillery, William Cadenheads (the oldest independent bottler) and several other blended scotch labels. They are tough cookies down in this neck of the world where by they are one of the last surviving producers of single malt whiskies in Campbeltown.

They have been licensed in 1828 and at one time the area had over thirty active distilleries. The distillery produces both peated and unpeated expressions under three distinct brands. Springbank, Hazelburn and Longrow. Matured for 8 years in a Sherry oak cask…the colour says it all really! Beautiful. Kilkerran is derived from the gaelic “Caen Loch Cille Chiarain” which is the name of the original settlement where Saint Kieran had his religious cell.

One per household.
