Bowmore Distillery invests more time than necessary at every stage of its process. They have their own proprietary malt barns, hand-turning barley day and night. Bowmore allows for perfectly timed fermentation periods. And they take their time to hand-select the casks, nosing every single one before it is filled with their new make. This care and attention to detail is what creates the complex balance of not just Smoke, but also maritime minerality and fresh stone fruit notes which is so characteristic of Bowmore's timeless house style.
