About Campbeltown

With only three active distilleries, Campbeltown is the smallest whisky producing region in Scotland. This was quite different in the past, when up to 28 distilleries were producing whiskies that are generally characterized by maritime influences.

Glen Scotia produces single malt whiskies under their own name only, while the Glengyle distillery produces Kilkerran whisky. In the Springbank Distillery, Hazelburn, Longrow and Springbank whisky are produced.
