Islay

    Islay is the southernmost of the Hebridean Islands on the west coast of Scotland, and at eight distilleries it is the second smallest region in terms of distillery numbers. Like Campbeltown, Islay may be small but its whiskies pack a distinctive punch that have gained them world renown and mean it is the source of some of the most sought-after whiskies in Scotland. Ardbeg, Bruichladdich, Laphroaig and Bowmore are just some of the illustrious distilleries producing whisky in Islay today.


    Islay is renowned for its smoky flavours combined with brine and seaweed tones that reflect the rugged island location and climate. Not all Islay whiskies are peated however, and there are also tones of rich, fruity apple to be enjoyed if peat is not to your taste.
