    Springbank Single Malt Whisky

    Campbeltown, home to the Springbank distillery, holds an important place in the history of Scotch whisky; it was the centre of illicit production and smuggling for much of the 17th century. Once production of the spirit was legalised it continued to be an important force, and at one stage there were as many as 34 legal distilleries functioning in the area. The whisky business was booming and towards the end of the 19th century, Campbeltown – with a population of less than 2000 – was thought to be the richest town in Britain per capita.

    The Campbeltown bubble was to burst spectacularly though, as distilleries began cutting corners to keep up with the incredible demand for whisky from the region. Many of these distilleries began closing down and there are now only three active distilleries in Campbeltown; one of which, Glengyle, was only revived in 2004. Springbank is one of those survivors, and it is now thriving and producing three distinctive single malt whiskies; Springbank, Longrow, and Hazelburn.

    Springbank was originally founded in 1828 by the Reid family, it was the 14th distillery in Campbeltown. In 1837 ownership of the distillery was passed to relatives of the founders, the Mitchell family - and the fifth generation of the Mitchell family still owns the distillery today.
