Springbank 2000 Private Bottling 'The Bloodtub' / Peat & Barley Whisky Tastings
A private bottling of Sprinbank single malt.
Springbank distillery has been owned and operated by the Mitchell family in Campbeltown since 1837, and it is 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.
Distilled in 2000 and matured (we assume) in a bloodtub, a tiny cask with a capacity of around 40 litres. The high spirit to wood ratio goes some way to explaining the exceptionally dark colour of this expression.
One of only 47 bottles produced for Peat & Barley Whisky Tastings.
