One of the oldest Islay's distillery is Bowmore. They are home to the world’s oldest whisky maturation warehouse , the No. 1 Vaults. It’s in this warehouse that Bowmore's whisky has been diligently matured by master distillers for nearly 240 years.
Bowmore's main produce is aged in ex-Sherry butts which directs the whisky to the flavours of dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, citrus and smoke. The famour No.1 Vault t is situated below the level of Loch Indaal and one wall makes up the town’s sea wall which is seen as ideal for long-term maturation.
