The Visitor Centre

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. 

  • Why not come and see us at the visitors centre were you can;
  • Take time to get to know our history.
  • Watch a short film about the Making of Bowmore.
  • Nose and taste different expressions.
