This 12 year old single malt was drawn from single cask #589 and bottled by Luvians sprit merchants to commemorate the 2005 British Open Golf Championship at St. Andrews.
Springbank distillery has been owned and operated by the Mitchell family in Campbeltown since 1837, and it one of Scotland's most revered distilleries. Following a brief mothballing between 1979 and 1987, upon the reopening the decision was taken to cease all sales to the blending industry and focus on its single malt sales. Today it is one of the only distilleries to malt, distil, bottle and mature whisky on the same site, and produces three distinct and highly prized single malts.
Tiger Woods would go on to win his tenth major title, five shots ahead of runner-up Colin Montgomerie.
