Established in 1881, Bunnahabhain is the most northerly of the Islay distilleries, with a name that means “mouth of the river.” With the tallest stills on the island and the only distillery to use pure spring water, Bunnahabhain single malt whisky is known for its sherried, delicate, complex and unpeated taste. Natural in colour and non–chill–filtered, the distillery’s spirits honour the whiskey–making techniques and traditions of its Scottish forebearers.
