Springbank Distillery Comments
The owners do not chill filter or add artificial colour to their whisky.
One of only two distilleries to produce, mature and bottle their product on the same premises. They even malt their own barley.
Present owners are direct descendents of the original Mitchells.
The distillery has three stills, although this does not mean a complete triple distillation occurs - only a part of the spirit is distilled three times.
The distillery also bottles a whisky called Longrow, named after a former distillery situated opposite.
