Brand Facts

From the Bowmore Distillery emerges a large portfolio of single malt scotch whiskies including five core whiskies: No.1, 12 Years, 15 Years, 18 Years and 25 Years. 

Bowmore also produces an extensive Limited Edition line and a range exclusively produced for travel retail and duty free.  

Bowmore is one of an ever decreasing handful of distilleries to produce its own floor malted barley.

Bowmore Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Founded over two centuries ago in 1779, Bowmore is the first recorded distillery on Islay and one of the oldest in the whole of Scotland. Islay malts are renowned for their peaty smokiness and Bowmore is no exception. We carefully smoke our malt in a peat-fired kiln, just as our ancestors did over 200 years ago.

It's the unique combination of the purest water from the Laggan River, floor-malted and smoked barley, the finest oak casks, Islay's natural environment and a dedicated team of craftsmen that together create the perfect balance for which Bowmore’s core range of single malt scotch whiskies is known and loved.
