Springbank distillery was founded in 1828 and remains to be one of the very few independently owned distilleries in Scotland. Springbank is one of the 2 distilleries to perform every step of the production process on site from malting the barley, to bottling the spirit (big kudos to Springbank and Kilchoman, which is the second distillery to do so), creating local jobs and supporting local economy whi. Springbank single malt is also available from the distillery, as well as Hazelburn triple distilled single malt.
Springbank 18yr is an amazing older bottling from the distillery, that was voted The Best Campbeltown Malt by the World Whiskies Awards in 2010.
