Springbank Distillery, Campbeltown, Argyll. Eigendom van J. & A. Mitchell & Co, Ltd.
Begin 1997 besluit men bij Springbank een nieuwe whisky te gaan produceren, 'unpeated' en drie maal gedistilleerd, de naam wordt Hazelburn.
Hazelburn (1825 - 1925) was eens de grootste distilleerderij in Campbeltown.
Gesticht aan het eind van de 18e eeuw stond de distilleerderij in Longrow maar omdat deze plek verre van ideaal was werd er rond 1840 een nieuwe, veel grotere distilleerderij ge-bouwd in de Millknowe Street.
Eigenaars waren de gebroeders Mathew en Daniel Greenlees en Archie Colville, de zoon van de eigenaar van Dalaruan distilleerderij.
Colville verdween in 1845 maar zijn naam bleef tot 1920 op de naamplaat staan.
De produktiekapaciteit was 250.000 gallons spirit per jaar en de lagerpakhuizen konden 500.000 gallons whisky bevatten.
In 1920 werd de onderneming verkocht aan Mackie & Co, dat later White Horse Distillers zou worden genoemd, die in 1924 samen met anderen opging in de D.C.L.
In 1925 werd de produktie gestaakt bij Hazelburn, de lagerpakhuizen werden nog jaren ge-bruikt door de D.C.L.
Nu is het een zakenpark en de meeste lagerpakhuizen zijn afgebroken.
In de lagerpakhuizen van Springbank liggen nu 29 Hogsheads whisky (eind 1997).
5. September komt de eerste Hazelburn 8 years uit

Hazelburn is one of three styles of single malt made at Springbank distillery in Campbeltown. While the bulk of the distillery’s output is concentrated on producing the Springbank malt, 10% of its production time is dedicated to creating the heavily peated Longrow, and a further 10% to the triple-distilled Hazelburn.

By using unpeated air-dried malt and triple distillation on two stills, the resultant spirit is light, fruity and subtle. It is currently available in 10- and 12-year-old expressions.

In the past Hazelburn has been released in limited numbers at a variety of ages and, as with all bottlings from J&A Mitchell, Hazelburn is neither chill-filtered nor coloured and is bottled on-site at 46% abv unless otherwise stated.


The Hazelburn single malt is named after a former Campbeltown distillery that ran from the early-18th century until 1925, but in its short lifetime grew to become the biggest in the area.

Springbank distillery, itself licensed since 1828, first began producing triple-distilled spirit in 1997 and the first Hazelburn whisky bottled in 2005 as an 8-year-old. Three different labels were created to mark the brand’s first edition, each featuring a different aspect of Springbank: its maltings, stills and casks.

The core range now also features 12- and 10-year-old expressions, which were introduced in 2009 and 2014 respectively.
