Description

A 20-year-old Distillery Exclusive from Bowmore, double matured in Oloroso & PX Sherry casks. Founder, Entrepreneur, Innovator. Bowmore’s founder David Simson is a true son of Islay; a man of vision and adventure whose proud legacy endures to this day. Born on the rugged island in 1742 to a large, religious family, his bold spirit saw him become a merchant and entrepreneur who invested his fortune in his beloved Hebridean home. David’s vision came to the fore after he was granted a plot of land by the Laird of Islay in 1766. With dreams of starting a distillery, he chose to buy rather than rent – ensuring his venture would always have a place to call home. Nestling on the banks of Loch Indal, this new endeavour grew slowly in a new purpose-built village that David called Bogh Mor, or ‘Black Reef’, after a rocky outcrop lurking offshore. Some 13 years later, Islay’s first licensed distillery was registered on the same spot using the town’s anglicised name – and one of the most famous legends in whisky was born. Under David’s watchful eye, the town and distillery thrived thanks to its unique waterside location; A landmark at the heart of the community, with its precious cargo ferried to distant shores. After overseeing the distillery for decades, David’s death in 1802 saw ownership pass to his sons, who in turn bequeathed its secrets to subsequent generations of distillers.
