Situated along the shores of Long Indaal, Bowmore Distillery was founded in 1779 by John Simpson. The distillery is the oldest distillery on the island of Islay and the second oldest in Scotland. Its unique location — Long Indaal suffers from steady gusts of wind and strong eddies that make its waters especially hazardous — plays an integral part in defining the lush, rich character of the Single Malt Whisky it produces.

Bowmore’s Single Malt Whiskies are made from barley that has been expertly cultivated in the rolling hills of Scotland. Once the barley has been harvested, it is malted and peated at the distillery — Bowmore remains one of the few Scottish distilleries that continues to hand-turn, malt, and peat its own barley. Unlike some other distilleries on Islay, however, the drying process is much shorter at Bowmore — only 15 hours — and utilizes only half as much peat, resulting in a Whisky with a robust yet still mild smoky flavor.

After the barley has been malted and peated, it is mashed and fermented with pure water drawn from the Laggan River. The water has spent two millennia percolating in the ancient rock formations and peat bogs of Islay, giving Bowmore Whiskey its distinctive, chewy body and subtle mouthfeel. Then, the fermented barley is twice distilled through Bowmore's copper-pot stills before being left to mature in the distillery's seaside, underground maturation vaults.

Bowmore 18 Year Old is an exquisite Islay single malt that is matured in hand-picked oak casks that used to hold bourbon and sherry. It's marvelously well-balanced with the peat smoke never overpowering the fruity sweetness and oak notes. Bottled at 86 proof, it's a limited expression that is bound to please fans of the gentler side of Islay.
