This is a bottle of Bowmore Jim McEwan's Celtic Heartland 1968, bottled by Murray McDavid in 2003, 700ml, 40.6% ABV in original box

Bowmore Distillery

Bowmore is the oldest distillery on Islay however it didn’t have much notable history until Suntory bought 35% in Morrison-Bowmore in 1989. After this point we saw huge changes in how Bowmore was marketed to the world. The launch of Black Bowmore in 1993, arguably, signalled the induction of whisky as a collectable asset. Suntory bought Morrison-Bowmore outright in 1994. Following this was the launch of Bowmore 15 Darkest in 1999, and the eventual release of the oldest and most sought-after Bowmore stocks to the world. There was also the change in distillate style after Suntory became involved, with the pre1990 stock of Bowmore always being given the ‘lavender’ moniker.

Murray McDavid

Murray McDavid was established in 1994 and quickly gained a reputation for interesting maturation methods and subsequent bottling. The company also played an integral role in the reopening of Bruichladdich in 2000. The bottlers are currently based in Coleburn distillery, Speyside.

Jim McEwan's Celtic Heartland

Each whisky in the Celtic Heartlands range was hand-selected by Jim McEwan. McEwan is one of the most famous names in Scotch whisky, having 38 years of experience at Bowmore under his belt, as well as a Master Distiller role at Bruichladdich for 15 years. In 2017 he left Bruichladdich bound for Ardnahoe. 

The Celtic Heartlands bottlings are beautifully presented in unique bottles and presentation cases.
