Description

A nice rare Springbank from the 'Local Barley' series, the materials used in the manufacture of the whisky in this bottle has almost all come from within a radius of 8 miles of the distillery.

Distilled in February 1966 in a Pot Still from pure barley and matured in oak Bourbon casks for 32 years before being bottled in 1998.

Given the increasing popularity of the Springbank distillery, not many of these rare bottles come up for auction.

Campbeltown

Campbeltown single malts are single malt Scotch whiskies distilled in the burgh of Campbeltown, on the Kintyre peninsula in Scotland. Once a major producer of whisky with as many as 30 distilleries, and claiming the title "whisky capital of the world", its production has markedly declined. Most of the distilleries have gone out of business and little trace of them remains. By 2010 only three distilleries continue to produce whisky in Campbeltown: Springbank, Glengyle, and Glen Scotia. The Springbank distillery produces three distinct whiskies; Springbank, Hazelburn, and Longrow. Glengyle distillery has only recently been revived by J & A Mitchell and Co Ltd., who own and operate the Springbank distillery, and its whisky is sold under the name Kilkerran to avoid confusion with the Highland blended malt named Glengyle. As of 2016, Kilkerran has started bottling and selling a 12 year old spirit, to go along with their previously released No-Age-Statement offerings.
