Important Announcement – Tuesday 17th March 2020

Following a meeting between all distilleries on Islay and Jura, we have made the difficult decision to close our Distillery Visitor Centre with immediate effect until Friday 3rd of April. The situation will be reviewed at this time and a further update given to all visitors, colleagues and friends.

As much as we’d love to welcome you to our distillery the health and welfare of our visitors, colleagues and their families are our upmost priority and we are taking every preventative measure to decrease the spread of the coronavirus.

If you have booked a tour and tasting with us in the coming weeks, we will be in contact with you or alternatively please drop Billy and the team an email on e: or t: +44 (0) 1496 840 557.

Thank you for your continued support, keep safe, look after your local community and we look forward to welcoming you to Islay and Bunnahabhain Distillery as soon as possible.

The Bunnahabhain Pilgrimage

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.
