Tobermory was originally founded in 1798 by John Sinclair, under the name Ledaig (pronounced ‘led-chigg’), hence the recently released Ledaig range. Closing in 1837 and reopening in 1878, the distillery was acquired in 1890 by John Hopkins and Company. Today, Tobermory is the only distillery on the Isle of Mull. The distillery has quite a small annual capacity of just one million litres and runs at but three quarters of this. In 1930, the distillery closed and was used as a power plant. It was not the only time Tobermory had been used for purposes other than whisky distillation; in 1982 the buildings were leased to a dairy company who used them for storing cheese.
The malted barley is shipped from the Port Ellen malting’s at the South-East of Islay, also home to a more recent experiment whereby some casks are sent for maturation on the island, these are bottled as Ledaig.
Expect a swing between lightly peated Tobermory, and the more heavily peated Ledaig.
This single cask whisky was distilled in 2007 at the Tobermory Distillery and as it is peated labelled as a Ledaig. It was placed in a sherry cask and left to mature for 11 years. In May 2019 it was bottled at 58.5% abv by the Rest & Be Thankful Whisky Co.
Only 439 bottles were produced for worldwide distribution.
