Bowmore is located in the village of Bowmore on the Isle of Islay. The distillery is situated along the shores of Loch Indaal.

Production Style & Peat Level
Bowmore whiskies are known for their complex and balanced flavour profiles. The distillery uses traditional copper pot stills for distillation and sources peat locally to impart a characteristic smokiness to its whiskies. While Bowmore whiskies are peated, they are often considered to have a more moderate peat influence compared to some other Islay distilleries. The peat character is balanced by sweet, fruity, and maritime elements.

Core Range
Bowmore offers a diverse core range of expressions, including the Bowmore 12 Year Old, Bowmore 15 Year Old "Darkest," and the Bowmore 18 Year Old. Each expression showcases the characteristic Islay style with its own unique twist.

Visitor Centre
Bowmore has a visitor center that welcomes whisky enthusiasts. Visitors can take guided tours to learn about the whisky-making process, explore the historic distillery buildings, and enjoy tastings of Bowmore whiskies.
