Bowmore   Bowmore Logo

The Queen of the Hebrides', Islay (pronounced "eye-la") is located just off the west coast of Scotland. Its mild climate and rich peaty soil make it ideal for creating whisky, and despite having a population of not much more than 3,000, it's home to no fewer than eight distilleries.

Bowmore the place and Bowmore the celebrated Single Malt share many claims to fame. The island's administrative capital and crossroads, Bowmore the place was the first planned village in the country, founded in 1768. Just 11 years its junior, the distillery at the community's heart produces the First Islay Malt.
