Dumpy Bottles


One of the finest Bowmore Single Malts ever produced were bottled at 12 Years Old (or more) in brown
dumpy bottles in the 1960's and early 1970's. The 8 Years Old version is rare and very hard to find.

The earliest known bottling of Bowmore was bottled in approx.1890 by Mutter's.

The oldest known Bowmore Distillery Bottling



Each one of Bowmore's six, massive
Oregon pine washbacks is named
after a previous owner of the Distillery.

Mr Mutter's legacy lives on as we still
produce whisky using water from the
River Laggan, the source he discovered.
