Islay Whisky

Before delving into the details of Bowmore whisky, you should, first of all, understand the significance of the Isle of Islay in the world of whisky. Folklore tells us that monks travelling from Ireland first brought the art of whisky distilling to Islay after realising the islands aptness for the process. Islay has an abundance of peat, which is partly decomposed vegetable matter), freshwater and barley, all of which are used in the distilling process. The conditions are perfect. To this day, the Islay peat is what gives Islay whisky its special flavour of faint sea air and seaweed.

Bowmore Whisky

The very first record of the Bowmore Distillery was in 1779, however, it is known that founder David Simpson bought the land in 1766 and many older members of the Islay community will confirm that distilling started on Islay long before 1779. One of the many legends of Islay distilling is that although the tax man first started excising whisky in the 17th century, he did not even visit Islay for another 150 years after due to the barbaric reputation of the Islanders. Therefore, it is not difficult to imagine that perhaps Bowmore distilling was active for some time before it was officially recorded.
