Bowmore Bicentenary

One of two Bicentenary bottlings that were released in early 1979.

This is the multi-vintage version, a legendary bottling of Bowmore contains whisky vatted from a selection of casks distilled in the 1950s and 1960s with the earliest distillate being from 1950.

The selected casks were all matured exclusively in Bowmore's famous No.1 Vault, the original warehouse at the distillery, which dates back to 1779.

The bottle, bearing the Morrison clan coat of arms, is a replica of a hand blown decanter.

Please note that there is a design flaw with all Bowmore Bicentenary bottles. The cork is very thin and held in place by the wax, the wax is also soluble in whisky. This can create issues in transit where a bottle with no issues can start to leak, Whisky Auctioneer Ltd cannot be held liable for any leakage/damage caused whilst the bottle is in transit, including lots sent using Risk Free Shipping. Collection is advised.
