After the barley has been malted and peated, it is mashed and fermented with pure water drawn from Laggan River. The water has spent two millennia percolating in the ancient rock formations and peatbogs of Islay, giving Bowmore Whiskey its distinctive, chewy body and subtle mouthfeel. Then, the fermented barley is twice distilled through Bowmore's copper-pot stills before being left to mature in the distillery's seaside, underground maturation vaults.
Part of Bowmore’s core range this 12-year-old Single Malt is complex and balanced, with puffs of peat smoke and pools of honey, sharpened by lemon zest. This incredible expression won a gold medal at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
