Born and Bred on Islay: Islay malts are famed for their peaty smokiness and Bowmore 12 Years Old is no exception. As well as taking our water from the peat-laden Laggan River, we carefully smoke our malt in a peat-fired kiln, just as our ancestors did over 200 years ago. Nurtured for 12 years in Bowmore's legendary No. 1 vaults, the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland and the only one below sea level, the result is a classic Bowmore. The First Islay Malt: Bowmore's celebrated single malt has been distilled on the magical island of Islay, off the west coast of Scotland, ever since 1779. This makes it the first of Islay's eight distilleries by chronology certainly (and by taste too, many would say). Produced the same way today as it has always been, even down to the use of floor malted barley, Bowmore Single Malt is widely acknowledged to be among the finest and most perfectly balanced in the world. 40% alc./vol. Distilled and bottled in Scotland.
