Taken from the Campbeltown section of The Land of Whisky - 

"With just three working distilleries, Campbeltown is Scotland's smallest whisky-producing region. While some argue this doesn't warrant it being designated a whisky region, its single malts boast unique characteristics that have a devoted following.

In its heyday, this small Kintyre harbour town was a prolific producer with more than 30 legal distilleries, earning it the moniker of 'whisky capital of the world' - later conferred on Dufftown in Speyside.

With ample pasture, peat bogs and coal mines, and many farms growing barley, Campbeltown distillers had all the resources they needed. It became a whisky boomtown in the 1800s, thanks largely to its bustling port."
