The Disitllery

Bowmore Distillery is located on the Scottish island of Islay, on the shores of Loch Indaal. It was founded in 1779, making it one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, by local merchant David Simson. The distillery's location on the rugged and windswept island of Islay provides it with a unique terroir, which helps to give its whiskies their distinctive character.

Over the years, Bowmore Distillery has undergone several changes in ownership and has been expanded and modernized to increase production capacity. In 1963, the distillery was acquired by Stanley P. Morrison, who later became part of the Japanese company Suntory. Today, Bowmore is one of the largest producers of single malt Scotch whisky on Islay, with a focus on producing high-quality whiskies that reflect the unique character of the island.

Bowmore's whiskies are known for their smoky, peaty character, with notes of salt, seaweed, and citrus. The distillery uses traditional whisky-making methods, including the use of peat-fired kilns to dry its malted barley, which gives its whiskies their distinctive smoky flavor. Bowmore's commitment to innovation and experimentation has led to the development of a range of unique expressions, including whiskies finished in port, sherry, and wine casks. Despite its large-scale production, Bowmore remains committed to traditional whisky-making methods and its whiskies are highly regarded among whisky enthusiasts and have won numerous awards for their quality and character.
