We end our tour inside Bowmore's award-winning Visitor Centre, which welcomes around 10,000 visitors through its doors every year. Here you can enjoy a dram in front of a roaring fire during the winter or, in the summertime, stroll out onto the balcony overlooking Loch Indaal. There's no better way to enjoy one of the best views on Islay than with a dram of Bowmore.
Eddie began his days at Bowmore in July 1966 working in the warehouses. He then moved to the Maltbarns gradually working throughout the distillery before earning his title as Master Distiller.
While our virtual tour gives a flavour of what to expect, there's really no substitute for visiting Islay in person and experiencing the unique atmosphere inside Bowmore's legendary No. 1 Vaults for yourself. Our essential guide will start you on your way.
