It’s beginning to look a look a lot like… Christmas 2002 with this fascinating 12 year old from Springbank!
Matured in Madeira wood and bottled at 100 proof (57% ABV) exclusively for the Shareholders, Directors and staff of J&A Mitchell Co. Ltd, the Springbank distillery proprietors.
Exceptionally rare, it is believed that only 66 bottles of this precious liquid were ever produced. The rear of the bottle and the carton are both hand-signed by the then General Manager, Frank McHardy.
The Springbank distillery was established in 1828 on the site of Archibald Mitchell’s prohibited still by members of the Reid family, in-laws of the Mitchells. In 1837, brothers John and William Mitchell purchased the distillery. In 1897, J&A Mitchell Co. was founded. The company’s current owner and Chairman is Hedley Wright, great, great grandson of Archibald Mitchell - the 5th generation of the Mitchell family to own and manage Springbank.
