Bowmore WhiskyBowmore Whisky Distillery, lying on the South East shore of Loch Indaal, is one of Scotland's oldest distilleries having been established in 1779. Advocating a traditional floor malting, Bowmore Whisky Distillery has an annual capacity of 2,000,000 litres. Fermentation uses traditional wooden washbacks before the liquid passes through four stills; two wash and two spirit. The waste energy from the Bowmore Whisky process heats a public swimming pool built in one of the distillery's former cask warehouses. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, spectacular wildlife and welcoming locals, Bowmore is a place unlike any other. Perched right on the shores of Loch Indaal, the town is home to almost one third of Islay's population. Along with the distillery, Bowmore is known for its whitewashed houses, tiny, stone-built harbour and pier, and the iconic Bowmore Round Church, which sits at the top of Main Street, commanding impressive views over the village, Loch Indaal and beyond.
