Straight from the barrel and cask strength

Springbank Distillery is the oldest independent family owned distillery in Scotland. Founded in 1828 on the site of Archibald Mitchell’s illicit still, the Springbank Distillery is now in the hands of his great great great grand son, Hedley G. Wright. As distillery after distillery set up in Campbeltown, with the demand for malts from this area appearing insatiable, the business of the Mitchell family stretched further. John bought out the Toberanrigh Distillery built by cousin Alexander Wylie, while his sister Mary built Drumore Distillery in 1834 and William founded Glengyle in 1872.

Alcohol by Proof, from then barrel

The term originated in the 16th century, when payments to British sailors included rations of rum.

To ensure that the rum had not been watered down. It was “proved” by dousing gunpowder with the rum and then testing to see if the gunpowder would ignite.

If the gunpowder would not light. Then the rum contained too much water and was considered to be “under proof”.
Gunpowder does not burn in rum that contained less than 57.15% ABV. Therefore, rum that contained this percentage of alcohol was defined to have “100° (one hundred degrees) proof”.
The gunpowder test was officially replaced by a specific gravity test in 1816. Source Wikipedia
