Overview
More
Springbank Distillery is one of the main visitor attractions in Campbeltown, Kintyre. It is one of three distilleries remaining in Campbeltown which, in the 19th century, was classed as 'The Whisky Capital of the World'. Established in 1828, Springbank is the oldest independent family owned distillery in Scotland and is the only distillery in Scotland to carry out the full production process on one site - from the traditional floor maltings through to the bottling.

A thoroughly enjoyable tour by our very knowledgeable tour guide Craig. For £7 you get a tour, a taste and a miniature bottle to take a way. Recommend booking in advance.
