Springbank is the oldest independent family owned distillery in Scotland. Founded in 1828, on the site of Archibald Mitchel's illicit still , the Springbank Distillery is now in the hands of his great great great grandson, Hedley G. Wright.
It is the only distillery in Scotland to carry out the full production process on the one site. One hundred percent of the traditional floor malting, maturation and bottling is done at the distillery in Campbeltown. It produces the most handmade whisky in Scotland, with traditional production methods being used throughout the process and human involvement at each and every stage. It is the only distillery in Scotland to have never chill filtered nor do we add any artificial colourings to any of our single malts.
It is the only distillery in Scotland to produce three different single malts, Springbank, Longrow and Hazelburn, using three different production methods. Springbank Single Malt – The malt is dried for 6 hours over a peat fire then a further 24 hours over hot air. Distilled two and a half times. Longrow Single Malt – The malt is dried for 48 hours over a peat fire. Double distilled. Hazelburn Single Malt – The malt is dried over hot air only, no peat at all is used. Triple distilled.
