Description

A bottle of Bowmore Distillery Manager's Selection. This was distilled in 1997, matured in 12 first fill oloroso sherry hogsheads and bottled at cask strength in 2019. This limited release was specially selected by Distillery Manager David Turner.

This is bottle number 2918 of 3000.

Bowmore started distilling in 1779, though there is no evidence of whisky production until John Simpson was granted a licence to distil in 1816. The distillery passed through several hands, and even supplied a cask to Windsor Castle, before it was purchased by perhaps its most famous owner, Stanley P Morrison, in 1963. Bowmore maintains its own floor maltings which supply 40% of its barley, and is known for its medium-peated character. The whisky is left to mature in the No.1 Vaults, which is said to inhabit a unique microclimate, perfect for long periods of maturation.
