The Countdown Collection


The ballot for our first release in the five part Countdown Collection series has now concluded. This series of bottles has been launched to commemorate Springbank’s journey towards its 200th Anniversary.

The Countdown Collection is a celebration of the endurance, adaptability and unwavering commitment to producing whisky of the highest quality using traditional methods. These whiskies are a tribute to the generations who have contributed to the success of Springbank under the steadfast leadership of J & A Mitchell.

The Countdown Collection series will feature one special bottling released each year from the distillery. Each edition will be limited to just 500 bottles exclusively available via ballot to Springbank followers around the world.

These whiskies are just one part of what will be a wider celebration of this huge achievement for the distillery which has remained independent and family owned throughout its 200 year history.

A variety of special events, experiences and prizes will be on offer in the lead up to and during our 200th Anniversary Year in 2028 so there is lots to look forward to and share with all those who have supported and taken interest in the distillery, or simply enjoyed drinking the whiskies made here over the years.

We hope you will join us on this exciting and inclusive journey, counting down the years to this momentous milestone.

Please check our full terms and conditions of sale  for more details.
