This distillery is the most northerly and remote on the island of Islay and was opened in 1883 to make use of excess grain from local farmers. The name Bunnahabhain translates as ‘mouth of the river’ and if you ever visit will see that the distillery is built near the mouth of the River Margadale which flows into the Sound of Islay. Pronounced Bú-na-ha-venn, this Islay Single Malt Scotch whisky is quite distinct from the many others on the island, given the wonderfully gentle taste profile for which it is known.
Like many other distilleries Bunnahabhain have changed ancient processes and made them modern but still producing a renowned and distinctive single malt. There are two reasons for this – firstly, it has been created using lightly peated malted barley in a time-honoured distillation process and, secondly, this isolated coastal sanctuary takes advantage of the pure spring water that flows freely from underground away from the peaty moorlands.
Bunnahabhain is one of the main whiskies which is added to Famous Grouse and Black Bottle blends.
This rare whisky from famous independent bottlers Berry Bros. & Rudd is a wonderful Islay whisky produced at the Bunnahabhain Distillery. The peated spirit was filled into casks that previously stored American Bourbon, then left to sleep for 29 years before being bottled at 43.4% abv. No chill-filtration and colouring.
