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

Distilled by Bowmore in 1965 and matured for 52 years, this is the third edition from the highly-esteemed 'Bowmore 50 Year Old Vaults' series.

Using the finest Oloroso sherry casks, this exceptional cask strength release from Bowmore is one of its rarest whiskies to date. The whisky contained is said to be some of the first to pass through Bowmore's then-new heated stills in 1965.

A hand-crafted oak cabinet provides a fitting presentation for this classic from the legendary Bowmore No.1 Vaults. 

This is one of only 232 bottles released.
