Coastal Harmony: Springbank 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A Tapestry of Tradition and Innovation

History and Pedigree: Springbank, located in the once-whisky-dominant region of Campbeltown on the Kintyre Peninsula, is a testament to Scottish whisky heritage and innovation. Founded in 1828 by Archibald and Hugh Mitchell, it is the oldest independent family-owned distillery in Scotland and a rare gem that embodies the soul of Campbeltown's distilling past. With a lineage stretching back to the 14th licensed distillery in Campbeltown, Springbank's commitment to tradition and quality has made it a cornerstone of Scottish whisky culture.

Production Highlights: Unique among Scotland's distilleries, Springbank conducts every aspect of production in-house—from the traditional floor malting of barley to the final bottling. This comprehensive control over the production process allows for creating three distinct whisky styles under the Springbank, Longrow, and Hazelburn labels, each reflecting a different facet of whisky craftsmanship. The 10 Year Old, matured in a blend of bourbon and sherry casks, showcases Springbank's dedication to complexity and balance, distilled twice to achieve its signature profile.

Product Details: The Springbank 10 Year Old is an invitation to explore the essence of Campbeltown whisky, offering a perfect harmony of 46% ABV with 60% bourbon and 40% sherry barrels aging. This meticulously crafted whisky stands as a testament to Springbank's mastery over the delicate art of whisky making, presenting a balanced and intricate experience from start to finish.

Sensory Perception: The nose is greeted with a vibrant blend of cereal, gooseberries, mango, vanilla pods, grapes, and honeycomb, painting a picture of Springbank's rich and varied palette. On the palate, this whisky unfolds with layers of oatmeal, malted barley, and orange pulp, complemented by heather honey, hard toffee, nutmeg, and cinnamon. The finish brings a distinctive sea salt note, rounding off the dram with a nod to its coastal roots.

Pairings and Occasions: The Springbank 10 Year Old's complex yet accessible profile makes it a versatile companion for various culinary delights. Pair it with seafood to echo its salty finish or creamy cheeses to contrast its vibrant fruit notes. Its balanced character makes it an ideal choice for sipping, providing a nuanced exploration of Campbeltown's whisky tradition. Whether enjoyed in quiet contemplation or as the centerpiece of a gathering among whisky aficionados, the Springbank 10 Year Old celebrates Campbeltown's enduring whisky legacy.

In every sip of Springbank 10 Year Old, one finds the perfect introduction to the storied range of Springbank whiskies.
