Hazelburn is a triple distilled non peated single malt Scotch, produced by the Springbank distillery, and named after the defunct Campbeltown Hazelburn distillery. Springbank distillery was founded in 1828 and remains to be one of the very few independently owned distilleries in Scotland. Springbank is one of the 2 distilleries to perform every step of the production process on site from malting the barley, to bottling the spirit (big kudos to Springbank and Kilchoman, which is the second distillery to do so). Springbank single malt is also available from the distillery, as well as Longrow peated single malt.
Hazelburn 12yr is a limited release from the distillery, with only 3,900 bottles released each year, following the 8yr release of just 6,000 bottles. It is non chill-filtered, no color added and bottled at 46% alc/vol.
