Springbank 50 Year Old
An incredible Springbank which we believe to be from the same iconic vintage as the Campbeltown 1919. Matured for 50 years and bottled in 1969.
Springbank is one of Scotland's many distilleries to be legitimately founded on the site of an illicit still. In 1837 the distillery was bought by the Mitchell family making this the longest family owned distillery in Scotland. Springbank was one of the few distilleries to make it through the Campbeltown crash, caused by the prohibition and the great depression.Although the distillery was closed for seven years it managed to reopen. This has widely been attributed to the distillery focusing on quality not quantity. Now one of the last three distilleries in the region.
Never chill filtering or adding artificial colour, Springbanks continued passion for traditional whisky production is still evident. Springbank malt their own barley and bottle their own final product. The entire process is completed on one location (no other distillery can testify to that). This is a fantastic whisky from a fantastic distillery.
