Springbank 1999 Local Barley 16 Year Old

Springbank distillery has been owned and operated by the Mitchell family in Campbeltown since 1837, and it one of Scotland's most revered distilleries. Following a brief mothballing between 1979 and 1987, upon the reopening the decision was taken to cease all sales to the blending industry and focus on its single malt sales. Today it is one of the only distilleries to malt, distil, bottle and mature whisky on the same site, and produces three distinct and highly prized single malts.

This is one of a select number of releases produced using malted barley harvested from neighbouring farms in the Campbeltown area. They were first introduced in the late 1990s, and were eventually re-named as the Local Barley series in the 2000s.

Bottled in 2016, this was the first of the mid-2010s revival of the Local Barley range. Originally intended to be a five-part series, this is instead now being marketed as an annual release.

Distilled in September 1999 and bottled in January 2016, the local barley comes from the varietal Prisma and was grown at Low Machrimore Farm on the Kintyre Peninsula.

Limited to only 9,000 bottles.
