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…

There are trips, there are journeys and then there are pilgrimages – coming to Bunnahabhain is definitely the latter for many of our travellers.

Gaelic is the sound of our heritage, and keeping that part of our past alive is very important to us. It's great to hear people all over the World pronouncing our Gaelic whisky names.

The Sound of Islay is not just the channel of water that runs past our distillery - It's the sound of our Gaelic heritage passed down generations. We honour this with our whiskies and their names. They might not always be the easiest to pronounce, but it's a part of who we are. pic.twitter.com/63n2FYoPf9
The Sound of Islay. A body of water which runs right past our distillery, leaving its influence on our whiskies as they mature in our coastal warehouses. But it's not just a waterway to us. The Sound of Islay is about so much more. #DiscoverTheSoundOfIslaypic.twitter.com/7Qp4Gi4xk0
