Bowmore 1966 is available in limited quantities and celebrates a pivotal year for the Islay distillery. The single malt whisky was distilled in the same year that Bowmore Islay Single Malt was officially first bottled. The ex-bourbon cask laid down in 1966 was kept aside as a ‘special’ cask and protected by distillery manager Eddie MacAffer, who joined Bowmore distillery that very same year.

Sitting at the pinnacle of Bowmore’s age-statement portfolio, Bowmore 1966 is presented in a handmade crystal decanter featuring sterling silver adornments, and is housed in a handmade cabinet made from Scottish oak.
