Amidst the wild beauty of Islay, the rough seas and winds of the Hebrides, Bowmore has been handcrafted since 1779. In the legendary "No. 1 Vault", the old stone vault on the edge of Loch Indaal, the magical character of Islay and centuries-old traditions combine to create a single malt whisky with complex balance, mild Islay smokiness, maritime minerality and a wealth of fresh stone fruit flavours. Bowmore Vault Edition Atlantic Sea Salt is crafted using the finest hand-selected ex-bourbon casks to create a refined liquid of greater depth, reflecting the special microclimate in the depths of the No.1 Vaults. Bowmore Distillery's proximity to the sea is crucial to the spirit's final character and the spray of the Atlantic Ocean washing against the iconic sea-facing wall of Bowmore's legendary No.1 Vaults is a key note in this release.
