Springbank 12 Cask Strength Batch 17

Springbank is a small Scottish distillery in Campbeltown, a small peninsula once home to dozens of distilleries. Today, there are only few representatives of the glorious era left. Springbank has a very long history and is unique in the Scottish landscape. Everything that happens in the distillery is done by hand, technology is absent and there is no project to start technical improvements.

The owner of the distillery has opted for this very little profit-oriented philosophy to maintain strong ties with the Campbeltown community, a kind of mutual aid. In addition, Springbank malts are admired in every corner of the world. This release is the 17th versions of the 12 year old cask strength, each with a different and certainly interesting recipe.
