Buy Springbank OnlineSpringbank distillery officially licensed in 1828, on a previous illicit still site of Archibald Mitchell. In 1897, John Mitchell took his son Alexander into partnership and the J&A Mitchell Company was formed. It is still known as this today. It is still owned by the same family, making it the oldest family-owned distillery in Scotland. Traditional methods of distillation are still used, including its own floor malting which is a tradition lost at many other distilleries. Water is drawn from Crosshill Loch, fed by springs on Beinn Ghuilean. Springbank produces three very different whiskies. Its own Springbank Campbeltown Single Malt. The heavily peated and double-distilled Longrow Single Malt. Hazelburn triple-distilled unpeated single malt.
