Buy Bowmore OnlineThe oldest licensed distillery on the island of Islay, founded in 1779 by farmer David Simpson, is located in the town of the same name and which sits on the shore of loch Indaal. It is recognised by its classic whitewashed buildings and black trimmed windows. The distillery produces its own floor malted barley, one in a handful that still do so. It draws its water from the Laggan River, which is rich in flavours from the nearby peat bogs. Bowmore whisky (or whiskey if you like) is hugely popular and we are delighted to stock and offer Bowmore 10 Year Old Tempest, Bowmore 11 Year Old (1998), Bowmore 12 Year Old, Bowmore 15 Year Old Darkest, Bowmore 40 Year Old (1968) Peerless, Bowmore 18 Year Old, Bowmore 27 Year Old, Bowmore 18 Year Old, Bowmore 25 Year Old, Bowmore 8 Year Old (2002) Whisky Galore and The Octave Bowmore.
