The Gauldrons – The Gauldrons is a bay facing the Atlantic Ocean located a short distance north of the tip of the Mull of Kintyre. Part of Douglas Laing’s Remarkable Regional Malts range, this marriage of the finest of Campbeltown malts, The Gauldrons literally means Bay of Storms. Let the whisky tell the story of the dark and stormy coves on Campbeltown’s west shores from inside your glass.
