Hazelburn Springbank Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Established in 1828 in Campbeltown, Scotland, the story of Springbank spans centuries of whisky history and five generations of one family: the Mitchells. As one of the oldest independent family-owned distilleries in Scotland, they are steeped in the tradition of whisky making. Even today, the whisky is produced using very traditional methods, making them one of the "most handmade" whiskies in Scotland. The distillery currently produces three different labels – Springbank as a medium-peated expression, Longrow as heavily peated, and Hazelburn as an unpeated style of whisky. With floor malting, various drying methods, long fermentation lasting around 100 hours, combined with different series and numbers of distillation, they achieve three uniquely different styles of whisky.

Hazelburn is produced at the Springbank Distillery in Campbeltown and represents their non-peated, triple-distilled whisky. It was first introduced in 1997, with the inaugural release at the age of 8 years occurring in 2005. The barley undergoes traditional malting on the floors at Springbank, where it germinates and is then dried by hot air on the perforated floor of the malt kiln without the use of any peat. The name Hazelburn pays homage to Hazelburn Distillery, one of the many lost distilleries in Campbeltown, which was one of the largest at that time and operated from 1825 until 1925.
