Islay Single Malt Whisky

We are the original Islay distillery and home to the oldest Scotch whisky maturation warehouse in the world.

Within our No. 1 Vaults, you’ll find more Scotch history than anywhere else. It’s in the fresh sea air, the old stone walls, and the earth upon which every cask of Bowmore whisky matures.

A place of legend and craftsmanship, of beauty and reflection, the No. 1 Vaults is where Bowmore single malt Scotch whisky is meticulously matured until perfect. Our master distillers have been doing it that way since 1779.
