Longrow 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Longrow 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Nearly two centuries ago, the town of Campbeltown, located on a narrow peninsula in southwest Scotland, was considered the whisky capital of the world. Passengers arriving by sea at Campbeltown Loch, nestled between Macringans Point and the rocky island of Davaar, were greeted with the sails and masts of the herring fishing fleet and the smoking chimneys of nearly thirty different distilleries that called Campbeltown home. Two-hundred years later, Campbeltown Loch is considerably quieter and only three chimneys continue to billow smoke each acting as a beacon for an industry that, at one point, dominated the peninsula.In 1828, Springbank Distillery was founded on the site of Archibald Mitchells illicit still in Campbeltown (today, Mitchells great-great-great-grandson owns the distillery). Within ten years, its whisky was so well-regarded that a blender by the name of Johnnie Walker purchased 118 gallons at 43 pence a gallon.By the turn of the century as worldwide demand for Scotch whisky seemed insatiable distilleries throughout Scotland began cutting corners and outsourcing parts of the distillation process. Springbank Distillery, however, remained true to its Scottish heritage. Today, it remains one of only two distilleries in Scotland to perform every step of the whisky making process from malting barley to bottling whisky on the same premises.Produced by Springbank Distillery, this Longrow 18 is dark and slightly mysterious, with a complex nose that unearths a peaty aroma reminiscent of dunnage warehouses. This heavily peated, brazen since malt is bottled at 45 percent ABV.Pick up your bottle today!
