Hazelburn, named after one of the old Campbeltown distilleries and made with unpeated barley, is the newest addition to the range of whiskies produced at Springbank. The distillation process takes place at three stills: the first distillation produces almost around 20% alcohol, whilst the second gives an intermediate distillate about 35% alcohol. A third still is charged with a solution of almost 80% of the mentioned double-distillate and about 20% product of the first distillation, and then a third distillation is performed. The final dram is composed of almost 80% triple distilled, and about 20% double-distilled spirit.
Traditionally distilled twice the Scotch way from malt dried entirely over a peat fire, Longrow was first distilled at Springbank distillery in 1973. In limited availability (12.120 bottles) and in the number of the drams with a strong peaty character, it is highly collectable and precious. This cask strength dram was matured for 5 1/2 years in Bourbon casks and it was then left for another 18 months in Gaja Barolo casks.
