The original Springbank whisky has been distilled legally on the site of the present day distillery since 1828, and probably illicitly since well before then. Produced using lightly peated barley and using the most traditional of production techniques, from floor malting all the way through to the bottling stage, Springbank can best be described as a "hand-made" single malt.
