All about making whisky
Springbank 1989 is a single cask whisky aged for 18 years in a refill hogshead cask. Bottled in December 2009 by the independent bottler Douglas Laing, this expresses notes of vanilla toffee with some dry smoke.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
Founded in 1828, Springbank would later fall into the hands of the Mitchell family, who still own it to this day. Springbank is one of the last Scottish distilleries to carry out all of its production on site, from malting to bottling. Known for the extremely high quality of its sherry-influenced bottlings, a dry period in the 1980s left an indelible mark on Springbank’s stocks. Its style can therefore be easily separated into two periods: the first, with an emphasis on sherry casks, lasts up until to the 1990s, and the second, more centred on bourbon casks, begins just after the turn of the millennium.
Established in Glasgow in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing, the Douglas Lang company has, in recent years, made numerous changes to its structure. Fred Laing’s movement to the head of the company has contributed towards the business’s sound reputation. Known throughout the industry for the quality and variety of its cask selection (Douglas Laing still has casks from the most prestigious distilleries: Glenfarclas, Talisker, Ardbeg, etc.), the company has expanded its already rich range that includes historic selections such as Double Barrel, Premier Barrel and Director’s Cut, with two new collections guaranteed to please connoisseurs: Single Minded and Old Particular.
