Campbeltown lies towards the end of the Mull of Kintyre peninsula on the West Coast and was once home to over 30 distilleries – now only with three operating: Glen Scotia, Glengyle, and Springbank.
Campbeltown malts, such as those from Springbank distillery tend to be robust, complex whiskies that are full of flavour with hints of sea salt and mild peat. Glen Scotia and Springbank’s triple distilled Hazelburn are both lighter alternatives for those that prefer their malts a little more breezy.
Campbeltown's main active distilleries are Springbank, Glen Scotia and Kilkerran. While the most notable lost or mothballed are Ballegerggan, Dalaruan and Glen Nevis.
