Notes from Bunnahabhain
For centuries, Sicily’s Marsala wine has been renowned for its robustness and depth of flavour. Islay may be 2,000 miles west, but Bunnahabhin shares the same richness of character, so why not unite the taste of the two islands?’
Andrew Brown, Distillery Manager.
Bunnahabhain means ‘mouth of the river in Gaelic’. It’s origin can be traced back to 1879 when the idea of an Islay Distillery Company was created and the distillery built in 1883 beside the beautiful Bunnahabhain Bay on the Isle of Islay. If you stand for a moment your senses will smell the scent of the salt on the wind.
The distillery relied on sea trade and boats were sent from the village pier full of casks of whisky to the mainland.
Sadly in 1930 the distillery closed due to an economic downturn after the Great War but opened again 7 years later. Over the years Islay hasn’t changed much – the scenery is stunning. New roads have been built making it easier to travel around the Island. Over the years demand soared, new stills installed in 1963 and production increased. Investment also increased, packaging was modernised and a visitor centre added.
Staff make you feel welcome, the whisky tours are popular creating a great atmosphere.
