Maltman's Cottage Facilities
Type of Board
Of course, nobody knows more about our whiskies than those who make them, so our bespoke Craftsmen's Tours are revealing as well as enjoyable.
But you don't have to take our word for it - as The Malt Advocate put it: "There is no better tour - comprehensive, visually arresting, and well-planned, delivered with wit and nuggets of local knowledge - one gets the feeling that the tour has been specifically tailored just for you.
A final treat is nosing the 'angels share' in the traditional warehouse
- little wonder that the Queen has had a cask here since 1980."
Bowmore Distillery has stood on the shores of Loch Indaal, on the Hebridean Island of Islay, since 1779 (and quite possibly for a few years before that). This makes us the first ever distillery on the island (well, legal distillery anyway).
We're also naturally environmentally friendly (after all, much of what we do simply involves waiting for time and environment to work its magic). And where possible, we recycle - for instance the waste heat from the distillation process goes to heat the public swimming pool nearby.
But why not see for yourself? We are a little off the beaten track, it's true, but don't worry - the video opposite will give you a fine taste of where and who we are.
In between, it's been ruled - not always peacefully - by the Kings of Norway and Scotland, not to mention various clans (most notably the Campbells of Cawdor and then the Campbells of Shawfield).
Today, Islay is a tranquil place. The ghosts of battles fought long ago been put to rest. With a population of approximately 3,500, it is a place with a strong community. Farming, fishing and, of course, whisky are the main sources of employment for the islanders (known as Ileachs).
From the breathtaking nature to the welcoming locals, Islay is definitely well worth a visit.
So welcome, or as we also say around here, fàilte.
