Thomas Ewer’s passion for single malt Scotch whisky, his personal contacts at the distilleries and the joy of discovering new whiskies were the driving forces behind the creation of Malts of Scotland. After years of searching for the best and rarest casks to select and buy, it was decided in 2009 to bottle the first release of 11 special single cask Scotch whiskies under the name of Malts of Scotland. The motto of Malts of Scotland is special bottlings for special moments. All the details are significant: from the careful selection of the casks to the design and appearance of the packaging and the company. In the warehouses of Malts of Scotland there are about 400 barrels of whisky aging from more than 60 Scottish distilleries. This wide range ensures that we will certainly be spoiled with more special bottlings in the future. The whiskies of Malts of Scotland are not colored, are un-chillfiltered and most are bottled at cask strength. What you get is the purest taste of uisge beatha.
In the 17th and 18th Century, Campbeltown was the heart of the whisky industry. Today, only three distilleries remain, of which Springbank is the best known. It was founded in 1828 on Kintyre by Archibald Mitchell and almost 200 years later, is run by his great great grandson Hedley G. Wright. The quality of Springbank became world famous when a certain John Walker from Kilmarnock purchased 118 gallons for his blended whisky. The distillery is traditional in the sense that all the steps of the production take place on site: growing barley, malting, distilling, maturing and bottling. Springbank produces three different single malts: Springbank, Longrow (heavily peated) and Hazelburn (non-peated and triple distilled). In 2010, Whisky Magazine awarded Springbank the title ‘Distiller of the Year’..
