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 27 Year Old The Vintner's Trilogy is the third release in the Vintner's Trilogy collection. Double matured in the world's oldest Scotch maturation warehouse – the legendary No.1 Vaults – it's first aged for 13 years in ex-bourbon barrels and then for 14 years in port pipes. The result is a luxurious balance of sweet, spicy and salty notes with peat smoke. Non-chill filtered and bottled at 96.6 proof, it captivates the eye with a deep mahogany hue and the senses with a beautifully peaty nose and a decadent palate with smoky notes dancing with sultanas, sugarplums, salted caramel and sweet leather.
