Springbank Distillery

Springbank Distillery

Springbank distillery is the oldest independent, family-owned distillery in Scotland. Legal distillation began in 1828. The chairman is Hedley Wright, the great, great grandson of John Mitchell, the first legal distiller of Springbank whisky.

There are a few Scottish distilleries that still malt barley but Springbank is the only distillery which malts 100% of its own barley, using the traditional floor maltings.

The whole production process: malting, milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturation and bottling, happens on the one site in Campbeltown. This is unique in Scotland.

Three malt whiskies are produced at Springbank Distillery, each with its own character.

Springbank which is 80% of production, is lightly peated and distilled two and a half times.

Longrow is more heavily peated and distilled two times.

Hazelburn is unpeated and distilled three times.
