Our 12 year old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky was the beginning of our Bunnahabhain range, launched to fanfare and praise alike. Taste the origins of Bunnahabhain with an alluring balance of sweet fruit, nuts, vanilla and a delicate coastal influence.
Stiùireadair (pronunced ‘stew-rahdur’ and meaning ‘helmsman’ in Scots Gaelic) is the latest member of the Bunnahabhain crew. With a brackish, coastal tinge, this sherried malt will transport you to Bunnahabhain bay, with a smattering of sea spray and dried fruit lingering on your lips…
Join us as we journey through the history of Bunnahabhain on our warehouse 9 tour and tasting. Walk through our 140 year old distillery and enjoy a tutored tasting of three exclusive single casks. Learn, taste, love…
Silent season is upon us and Andrew and his team have a busy eight weeks as they replace and repair some of the equipment around the production floor. We are still open throughout this time for tours and tastings.
Accessed by a small, single track road, nestled in between rolling hills and Bunnahabhain bay, there you will find our distillery. Since 1881, we have harnessed the natural ingredients provided by our surroundings. Supported by the passion and dedication of our people, Bunnahabhain has brought man and nature together in perfect harmony.
Stand for just a moment and your senses will fill; smell the scent of salt on the wind, hear our Porteus mill grinding the barley, look upon the shimmering light playing across the sea, feel the history in warehouse number 9 — taste Bunnahabhain.
There are trips, there are journeys and then there are pilgrimages – coming to Bunnahabhain is definitely the latter for many of our travellers.
Be it the daring seafarers of yesteryear, who defied the elements to provide supplies to the pioneering early settlers of Bunnahabhain, or the thousands of tourists who today, seek to discover the origins of our beloved Single Malts – the journey to Bunnahabhain is one that you will never forget.
And they're in! Thanks to our hero of the hour who not only operated the crane to get the stills into the distillery, but then also made sure they were in the perfect position by pushing them in by hand! #BunnahabhainSilentSeasonpic.twitter.com/G6NXGjtd6v
More work done this afternoon - we've removed the still heating pans and what remains of the old door which will be refitted to the new still. Andrew Brown, our Distillery Manager, says they may even think about polishing it! #BunnahabhainSilentSeasonpic.twitter.com/lS1iDTSaXB

Warm sun, crystal blue seas and the sound of gentle waves coming in and out of the bay? Sounds like heaven to us! Unfortunately it's not looking quite so nice this weekend, but we don't mind the rain too much here; after all it helps us make our whisky! pic.twitter.com/B3FyltLUC5
