Springbank Distillery History

Springbank Distillery is the oldest independent family owned distillery in Scotland. Founded in 1828 on the site of Archibald Mitchell's illicit still.


It was Archibald's sons, John and William who took out a licence and started distilling legally as J & W Mitchell. The Springbank Distillery is now in the hands of his great great grand son, Hedley G. Wright.


However, John and William were farmers as well as distillers, and differences about the running of the farm eventually led them to go their separate ways. John and his son Alexander formed a partnership and the name changed to J & A Mitchell & Co. Ltd., the same company name used today.


Springbank is the only distillery in Scotland to carry out the full whisky production process on a single site. From the traditional floor malting, distillation, maturation through to bottling is carried out at the distillery in Campbeltown. Prior to 1935 coal from the local mine was used to fire the stills.


It can be regarded as the most hand made whisky produced in Scotland, with traditional distilling and production methods used throughout the process, and personal involvement at each and every stage.


Springbank can rightfully claim to be the only distillery in Scotland to produce three styles of single malts, Springbank, Longrow and Hazelburn, this is achieved by using three different production methods. Also it is the only Scottish distillery to have never chill-filtered
