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.
A limited and coveted bottle from Springbank, distilled to celebrate their return to distilling after suspending production for a while. ODD is an acronym selected from a competition on their website - Original. Distinct. Defiant. This one is 12 years old and was matured in a light rum cask.
Another interesting bottling from the "ODD" series of bottlings by Springbank distillery. Each release is without age-statement or vintage and bottled at 46%. This whisky has been matured in a Fresh Rum Cask.
