Bowmore distillery, the oldest producing distillery on the wonderful island of Islay. Found on the shore of Loch Indaal, is was established back in 1779. The distillery currently operated by Morrison Bowmore Distillers. This is part of a larger cog that is Beam Suntory. Other distilleries that come under the Suntory umbrella are the Auchentoshan and Glen Garioch distilleries. As mentioned the establishment of the distillery was in 1779 by John P. Simson. He sadly had to pass up ownership of the distillery and it was bought by a German family, the Mutter family. Mutter had some great idea during his tenure. The traditional nature of Bowmore is still found in their drams with as much local barley from the island being sourced as possible and their own floor maltings being used. Around 2 million litres are produced which is a real bonus for the locals because any surplus heat from from the process goes to heat the public swimming pool! The distillery is held in high regard for producing some of the worlds most expensive and collectable malts such as the Black Bowmore.
The distillery has been operating for over 240 years and has had many managers keep watch over their beautiful distillery. This release celebrates their current manager, David Turner. This first volume "The Distiller's Anthology Vol 1" captures the influence of Oloroso sherry that unlocks notes of sweet spicey fruits that sparks memories of Davids past. Bottled at 50.2% and is one of only 3516 bottles.
