Notes: Bowmore is one of the few distilleries still producing its own floormalted barley. The stillhouse holds 4 stills. The water is from the Laggan River, about 8 miles away.
The hot water from the distillation process is used to heat a swimmingpool in one of the old warehousebuildings.
Bowmore's distillery mouser, Smoky, was one of the most famous mousers: Amongst the seven most beautiful cats in GB, appearing in the "Literary Cat Calender 2000", and subject of a poem written by Robin Laing!
