Springbank Barolo Finish 9 Year
Springbank // Scotland
Springbank Distillers, producers of Springbank, Hazelburn, and Longrow, is owned and managed by Hedley G. Wright, the fifth generation of the Mitchell family. Springbank was founded in 1828 at the region of Campbelltown, Scotland by Archibald Mitchell. The entire whiskey making process is carried out on site at the Springbank distillery, where barley is floor-malted, kilned for 30 to 48 hours, milled in a 1940's Porteous mill, and mashed in a mash tun. The liquid is then fermented in wooden wash backs and distilled in a copper still two and a half times. This 9 Year expression is aged for four years in refill bourbon barrels and five years in Barolo wine casks. Distilled in February 2004 and bottled in 2013 at 109 proof, 54.7% ABV, 11,000 non chill-filtered bottles were released with added water from Campbelltown hills and no added coloring.
