The Magical Island of Islay is at the southern tip of the Hebrides, it has a population of around 3000 people, but is home to nine of the world’s finest distilleries. We believe that if you find a whisky expert anywhere in the world and ask them to name their top five distilleries one will be on Islay!
Islay whisky tends to be Peaty, smoky flavours, and as the peat contains a lot of Seaweed it tends to be very medicinal (Iodine comes from Seaweed). There are a couple of exceptions, Bruichladdich and Bunnahabhain make non-peaty whisky.
