  • Bruichladdich

    Bruichladdich is known as The Sophisticated Islay and is a multilayered whisky with the complexity of fine wine. This is perhaps to be expected as some of the present owners of this Islay distillery are from the wine trade. Bruichladdich is proud of a 100% Island of Islay product - from barley to bottle. The only Islay distillery to bottle its own whisky, Bruichladdich has a creamy texture ...

  • Ardbeg

    Smugglers were distilling whisky here way back in 1794, though officially the Ardbeg Distillery was started in 1815. Located about four miles out of Port Ellen, Ardbeg distillery nestles in a rocky cove on the Island of Islay's southern tip. The island lies off the west coast of Scotland.

  • Glenfarclas Distillery

    The only thing that has changed in 165 years is the label – this is the proud claim about the fine single malt whisky produced at Glenfarclas.

One of the few independent family owned distilleries functioning in Scotland today, the Grant family has owned Glenfarclas since 1865.

  • Macallan

    The Macallan Distilleries of Speyside in the Highlands produces the Rolls Royce among single malt whiskies. It is a doggedly traditional distillery with its unusually small hand-made copper stills. The distillers insist on a sherry aging, always in dry oloroso casks which are shipped unbroken from Spain. Others rebuild broken casks but Macallan uses the original.

  • Bowmore

    Morrison Bowmore Distillers firmly believe that the peat, the rock and the people of Islay have made Bowmore Single Malt the special drink it is. Add to this the age old pure waters of the Laggan River, the patient maturing over decades that Bowmore spends in oak casks and the meticulous hand turning of the barley with the traditional wooden malt shovel - and you have a subtle warm and smoky ...

  • Glen Moray Distillery

    Glen Moray Distillery has been around since 1897. It is situated on the banks of the River Lossie in the city of Elgin which is the capital of Speyside – an area that is well known for the number of malt whisky distilleries it has. Glen Moray is just 35 miles east of Inverness.

  • Dailuaine Distillery

    Dailuaine Distillery lies tucked away around a mile off the main Aberlour to Grantown road in Speyside, Scotland, in what is the perfect location for a distillery in many ways. It has good quality water from the Bailliemullich Burn, access to the local supply of barley and close to the Railway Line for transportation of the whisky.

  • Dalmore Distillery

    Dalmore Distillery is unusual in many ways. Not many whisky lovers seem to be aware of this distinctive single malt that has been created in the prime barley-growing district of Scotland. The still-men who work in the distillery are basically from a few local families. There are even three generations of a family working together. They believe that their pedigreed whisky is shaped by time, ...

It was constructed in 1898-9 by a whisky blending company known as Wright and Grieg Ltd. Today it is a living Scottish museum run by Historic Scotland.
