Campbeltown, during the mid-1800s, was the epicentre of Scotland's distilling industry, with 28 distilleries at one stage in the 1830s. Today, however, this number has dwindled to just three: Springbank, which also produces the peated Longrow and the unpeated Hazelburn; Glen Scotia; and recent addition Glengyle, home of Kilkerran malt.

A special bottling for the Springbank Society. This 1997 vintage Longrow was distilled in 1997 and matured for 8 years in a refill sherry butt. Bottled in July 2005 at cask strength and limited to only 630 bottles.
A 1991 vintage bottling of Springbank, aged in ex-bourbon casks and bottled at 12 years old. This was distilled the year before Springbnak reintroduced the on-site maltings, so would have been one of the last spirits to be distilled using imported barley.
The first edition of Springbank CV. A vatting of many different cask types and sizes, this was released in the mid 1990s. To quote Springbank themselves "What does CV mean? Chairman's Vat? Currriculum vitae? Cuvee of Vintages? It means whatever you want it to mean, enjoying the whisky is the most important thing".
A 1994 vintage Longrow from independent bottlers (and Springbank distillery's subsidiary) Cadenhead's. This was distilled just two years after Springbank's on-site maltings reopened and was bottled at 11 years of age.
A special whisky commissioned by Gordon Wright and the Soil Association and produced by Springbank. This is the first completely organic single malt whisky produced. Bottled specially for the Millennium and named Dà Mhìle, which is Gaelic for 2000.
