Established in 1828 by Archibald Mitchell , Springbank distillery is Scotland's oldest independent distillery and to this day remains under the control of the Mitchell family who founded the distillery.

The distillery actually produces 3 different malts Springbank, Longrow and Hazelburn. Springbank is distilled 2,5 times. The malt is dried for only 6 hours above a peat fire, then for 24 hours by warm air. The result is a less peaty malt than your normal Campbeltown malt. Springbank is one of just two distilleries that bottle their whiskies at the source, using the original water for the reduction to bottling strength (when they reduce at all). Glenfiddich is the only other.

Every drop of whisky made at Springbank is sold as single malt. It is bottled at many different ages, and with many different finishes. It is quite a unique whisky from a unique distillery.
