Stiùireadair; pronounced ‘stew-rahdur’ and means ‘helmsman’ in Scots Gaelic. Natural colour, non-chill filtered and 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.

Description

Meaning Helmsman in Scots Gaelic, Stiùireadair, is the first Bunnahabhain release to pay homage to the Bunnahabhain Helmsman, who adorns every bottle. But our Helmsman is no mere icon, he is a reminder of our origins, a link to our past, and a symbol of our enduring appreciation of the sea by which we are surrounded.

To create Stiùireadair, our Master Blender has selected first and second fill sherry casks with spirit of varying ages and warehouse locations to construct a dram that truly exposes the coastal nature of the Bunnahabhain single malt whisky, whilst not losing the sherry influence everyone knows and loves in the famous 12 year old.
