Bowmore Timeless Series

Nomination

The Bowmore Timeless series is designed to celebrate the distillery’s legacy: for over 250 years, Bowmore has insisted the secret behind their cherished whiskies is time: the careful selection of the right casks at the right time, the time it takes the liquid to reach optimum age and the time every master distiller needs to hone their craft. The brief was to develop an ‘disruptive’ idea which encapsulated this idea of time.

The Kilnsman’s Dram
