Bowmore 12 Years Old whiskey is one of the sons of Bowmore, considered the capital of the island of Islay.
Here, on the banks of Loch Indaal, the Scottish distillery was built in 1779.
One of Scotland's oldest distillation rooms, exposed to brackish winds from the Atlantic.
It is the proximity of the sea, the aging warehouses lapped by the waves and even below sea level, to determine the characteristics of Bowmore.
The maltage is carried out, for a part of the requirement, directly in the Bowmore distillery with a dosed quantity of peat, while the water comes from the Laggan river.
The Bowmore distillery is equipped with four stills, two for each distillation.
