Bowmore Islay Single Malt Whisky has announced the launch of new packaging across its core range, from Bowmore 12 Year Old to Bowmore 25 Year Old and the newly launched Bowmore No.1.

The company claims to have the world’s oldest scotch maturation warehouse at more than 230 years.

Each expression comes in a carton that is said to portray the wooden doors of the its No.1 Vaults, perched on Islay’s edge, and highlights the establishment with a signature from David Simpson, Bowmore’s founder.

Subtly embossed on each label is the Bowmore icon of a padlock – an illustration of the lock still used today on the No. 1 Vaults.
