Bowmore Bottle Your Own Experience

Bowmore Bottle Your Own Experience

On of the attractions of this years Feis Ile is the opportunity to bottle your own bottle of Bowmore. On offer is cask number 23 from 1997. It is a first fill Oloroso sherry butt that is currently at 55.5%. Going down to the Number One Vaults to fill it was a fabulous experience, and it was really interesting to use the valinch to pull the whisky from the cask and to fill the bottle. I opted not to use any sort of filter so it will be raw and unique. A final nice touch was that as we left the warehouse we bumped into Rachel and Eddie who signed the bottle for me. Amazing.
