Producing the beautifully balanced Bowmore Single Malt is no easy task, and in common with most Scotch whisky distilleries, we cease to produce whisky for a certain period in the year, during this time we carry out our essential site maintenance, we call this the Silent Season.
Alcohol and the Law
There is a strict zero tolerance policy for drink-driving in Scotland so please make sure you do not have to drive if you are enjoying a dram at any of our experiences. Islay has a very good bus service which runs throughout the day and there are also several small taxi companies – see here for more information.
If you do need to drive, please let us know and we will provide you with a takeaway bottle to enjoy your dram later in the day.
Please get in touch if you require any information about specific access needs or if you need advice on planning your visit and we will do our best to help. Please note that our whisky bar is accessed by a set of seven steps, there are also some steps on our distillery tour route, please reach out to us ahead of your visit and we will be happy to assist.
