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…
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 peaceful 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 Sound of Islay, 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 and braved the Sound of Islay 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.
Summer is definitely over at Bunnahabhain as the first dusting of snow has fallen on the Paps of Jura! Thanks to Billy at the Visitor Centre for this beautiful picture overlooking the Sound of Islay! #DiscoverTheSoundOfIslaypic.twitter.com/QlUkrpZJtn
The weather hasn't been the best for us these past couple of days, but today we've been rewarded with this rather spectacular view looking over the Sound of Islay from Bunnahabhain Bay! Even on a gloomy November day, our little corner of the island is still beautiful! pic.twitter.com/ILEZUPU7Xj
The Sound of Islay. The stretch of water running past our distillery. But the 'Sound of Islay' is also the sound of patience as we mature our malt, the sound of our Gaelic heritage, the sound of peace and escape when you arrive at our distillery. #DiscoverTheSoundOfIslaypic.twitter.com/czHnHkwnEk
As the days get shorter and the Sound of Islay gets that bit wilder, we move into our Winter opening times at the distillery visitor centre. We are now open 10 - 4 Monday to Saturday and 12 - 4 on Sundays. For full tour details, visit: buff.ly/2q7O1nXpic.twitter.com/ey57mMAs6s
