We hope you can join us online or at the distillery - here's what we've got planned...

 

 

Our Fèis Ìle 2022 Whiskies


Released for Fèis Ìle 2022, discover our Limited Editions below...



Abhainn Araig


Meaning Araig River in Scots Gaelic, this Limited Edition has been matured in ex-Bourbon and Pedro Ximenez octave casks, hand-selected to push the boundaries of sherry maturation.


The result is a classic Bunnahabhain dram - bold, unpeated and sherried with a spicy cinnamon burst.

 

 

 



2004 Mòine Tokaji Cask Finish Whisky


The perfect balance of smoke and sweetness, this Distillery Exclusive festival release is made using our 'Mòine' (peated) spirit.


Finished for just over a year in Hungarian Tokaji white wine casks, this whisky is packed full of flavour; with notes of white chocolate, floral fruits, citrus and gentle woodiness.

 

 

 



1998 Calvados Cask Finish Whisky


Aged for 23 years, this sweet and fruity Limited Edition festival whisky has a powerful spicy finish.

Finished for 2 years in French Calvados Brandy casks, look out for flavours of apples and pears alongside signature Bunnahabhain dried fruit and sweet toffee notes.
