Proceeds from the sale donated to Islay Development Initiative for the Bowmore Legacy project, which aims to support the employability, training and housing needs of Bowmore’s young people.
The archive cabinet where the whiskey is housed showcases authentic items and materials from the Bowmore distillery. An original Bowmore Spirits safe was used in making the cabinet, making it a completely one-off piece that’ll never be replicated. The whisky will be placed inside handblown glass pillars, each in varying heights corresponding to the age of the whiskies.
“Black Bowmore truly is the jewel in our crown and it takes its rightful place in the distillery’s history for firmly putting Bowmore on the map as an iconic, collectable whisky. This full collection of five Black Bowmore bottlings is spectacular, made even more special by the cabinet within which it is beautifully housed,” says David Turner, Bowmore’s distillery manager.
Each element of the cabinet comes from our home; from the workings of the distillery preserving time gone by. This exceptional detail not only reflects the craftsmanship inherent in Bowmore but makes this unique masterpiece rooted in our Islay home. This means whoever buys this not only owns some of our spirit’s history but also actual elements of the distillery’s production history,” he adds.
