Once a thriving whisky metropolis, Campbeltown is a shadow of it’s former self. The region boasted 30 distilleries and now just three remain - however the variety they produce is huge.
Sweet and fruity, spiced and caramel - and rich peat too.

Campbeltown

The once thriving area of Campbeltown once claimed the title “whisky capital of the world” – but how times change. Sadly, most of the distilleries have gone – either by going bust or during infamous culls when the industry took a nose dive.

The region was once home to 28 distilleries, but by the early 2010’s, just three were remaining and actively producing whisky – Springbank. Glengyle and Glen Scotia.

Springbank distillery produces three distinct whiskies; Springbank, Hazelburn, and Longrow. Glengyle distillery has only recently been revived by J & A Mitchell and Co Ltd., who own and operate the Springbank distillery, and its whisky is sold under the name Kilkerran to avoid confusion with the Highland blended malt named Glengyle. 

 Campbeltown lies on the Kintyre peninsula by Campbeltown loch – west Scotland. In it’s time it was a busy whisky, shipbuilding and fishing town and was a former Royal Burgh.
