Situated at the southern tip of the Kintyre Peninsula, this “Wee Toon” as its affectionately known, is a whisky region in its own right. In it’s hay day, it was home to 30 distilleries – not bad considering the population has never been more than 3000. Campbeltown was a great place to make whisky, barley is grown locally and there was a coal seam for powering the distilleries, and peat for malting the barley. Over the years, the number of distilleries has dwindled to just one, Springbank. But now, with the new Glengyle and the reopened Glen Scotia, there are three.
