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

The first edition of the legendary Black Bowmore - distilled in 1964 and matured in oloroso casks for 29 years before being unleashed on the world.

Only 2000 bottles of this were released and there are hence have become a real rarity.   

Please note this bottle is understood to have been re-worked with a lead capsule: applied by Morrison Bowmore Distillers, due to original wax seal broken, which is quite common with the first edition.  As a result, the top part of the front label has also slightly slid down the bottle with age with signs of the existing glue on show.

Note the bottle number has also been blacked out on the back label.

Please note the original box is also missing.
