Founded over two centuries ago in 1779 Bowmore is the first recorded distillery on Islay (pronounced ‘eye-la’) and one of the oldest in the whole of Scotland. Islay malts are renowned for their peaty smokiness and Bowmore is no exception. They carefully smoke malt in a peat-fired kiln just as their ancestors did over 200 years ago!
Puffs of peat smoke and pools of honey sharpened by lemon zest. A warm amber colour. Breathe in subtle lemon and honey balanced beautifully by Bowmore's trademark peaty smokiness. Sip sweet and delicious heather honey and gentle peat smoke. A long mellow finish.
Try some smoked salmon langoustines scallops or oysters with a little fresh lemon.
