Springbank is a quite notable distillery for many reasons. The first is that they are one of only two distilleries in Scotland that perform all steps of the whisky making process themselves. From malting the barley to final bottling, everything is performed at the Springbank campus. The only other distillery to hold this claim is Kilchoman Distillery, which also grows their own barley.
The other notable fact of Springbank is that it’s one of the few remaining family owned distilleries. The family has avoided selling their whisky to outside blends, resulting in most of it’s production being sold as a single malt.
Springbank whiskies are distilled two and a half times. Distilling whisky two and a half times is quite unusual, as it means that during the distillation process some of the low wines are collected before the second distillation, and then mixed back into the feints for another distillation. This means that some parts of the spirit have been through distillation twice and some parts three times.
Today, Springbank whisky is one of the most sought after in the country and independently bottled expressions have been lauded by fans and critics alike.
