J & A Mitchell are a whisky company with an incredible pedigree. The family firm have been owner-operators of the legendary Springbank distillery since 1837 and are the parent company of Scotland's oldest independent bottler, Wm. Cadenhead. Through these channels alone, their output is nothing short of reverential, and this is before you even consider the casks they sold to independent companies like Samaroli through their R.W. Duthie arm, and to Japan via their Eaglesome company's Kingsbury brands. Many if not all of these are legendary. The company now owns a second distillery in Campbeltown, Glengyle, which is the home of Kilkerran single malt.
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.
