Springbank 2004 Duty Paid Sample 11 Year Old / Fresh Sherry Hogshead
Springbank distillery has been owned and operated by the Mitchell family in Campbeltown since 1837, and it one of Scotland's most revered distilleries. Following a brief mothballing between 1979 and 1987, upon the reopening the decision was taken to cease all sales to the blending industry and focus on its single malt sales. Today it is one of the only distilleries to malt, distil, bottle and mature whisky on the same site, and produces three distinct and highly prized single malts.
The Duty Paid Sample bottlings from Springbank are the only of their kind drawn from a single cask on a single day, making every one completely unique. These are highly sought after bottlings, each bearing the aesthetic of a “trade purposes only” sample, but they are publicly sold (when available) at the Campbeltown Cadenhead’s Shop, from a special cabinet known affectionately as “the cage.”
Distilled on the 12th November 2004 and bottled at 11 years of age.
Rotation 401 from warehouse 5, this was matured in a fresh sherry hogshead.
