About the distillery

Bowmore is a distillery that produces scotch whisky on the isle of Islay, an island of the Inner Hebrides.  The distillery, which lies on the South Eastern shore of Loch Indaal, is one of the oldest in Scotland and is said to have been established in 1779.  The distillery is owned by Beam Suntory who also own the Auchentoshan, Glen Garioch, Laphroaig and Ardmore distilleries and produce the Teacher's Highland Cream blend. 

Other Information

Known as the 'golden year' from Bowmore, this 1964 vintage is a truly special expression.  Bottled at 38 year old after maturation in Bourbon casks, this Bowmore shares its distillation year with that of the infamous 'Black Bowmore' series.  

The bottle was initially released as part of a trilogy series (one expression from a fino sherry cask and another from an oloroso sherry cask accompanies this bottling). All 3 bottles in the series are presented in this impressive wooden case with working lock and key.

This lot offers a unique opportunity to own one of the most sought after and incredibly rare Bowmore vintages.

One of only 300 bottles released, this is bottle number 22.

Please ensure that you undertake close up viewing/inspection prior to placing any bid.  If you are not satisfied with the photos, or if you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please click "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report.  Lots will be sold as seen and described.  Insurance against any damage during transit is available at checkout at a cost of 3% of the hammer price.  Please note that if insurance is not selected, due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
