Buy Hazelburn OnlineHazelburn distillery was founded in 1825 and ran for a century before closing. In this period it was the biggest distillery in Campbeltown. Springbank produces an 8yo Hazelburn and a 10yo Hazelburn, which is expected to be on the market in 2007.
The newest addition to the range of whiskies produced at Springbank, Hazelburn gains it's light, delicate character through being distilled three times in the distillery's old copper stills.
Hazelburn is made with unpeated barley, making the spirit light, fruity and very, very subtle.
1997 saw the first distillation of Hazelburn at Springbank and the first release of the whisky as an eight year old in 2005 was so successful that all 6,000 bottles sold out within a matter of weeks.
Like Longrow, Hazelburn is named after one of the old Campbeltown distilleries. Most of the distillery buildings are still standing, though the distillery is long defunct. Hazelburn is available as an 8 year old, 12 year and various wood finishes.
