A brief history on Springbank
Springbank Distillery is a distillery in Campbeltown, Scotland, that was founded in 1828. The distillery is owned by J&A Mitchell, and has been since 1897. In its heyday, Campbeltown was the distilling capital of Scotland. Unfortunately things took a turn, and many distilleries started closing down. For the longest time, Springbank was one of only 2 distilleries that survived in the Campbeltown region. The only time Springbank mothballed was from 1979 - 1989. Since re-opening, Springbank has only gone from strength to strength, and is now one if the most sought after single malt whisky.

Springbank is also famous for being the only distillery in Scotland that malts all their own barley on their malting floors. Three distinctive single malts with different styles are produced at the distillery. Springbank is distilled 2.5 times at 12-15ppm; Longrow is distilled twice at 50-55ppm; and Hazelburn is distilled three times and is unpeated. 

The flavours of the whiskies produced at Springbank distillery is truly of a unique one. Many a times, the flavour is simply described as a "Campbeltown funk".
