Established in 1881 and built close to the Mouth of the Margadale river, Bunnahabhain means Mouth of The River in Gaelic. Bunnahabhain is the only distillery on Islay to produce whisky using pure spring water. Most northerly of the Islay Distilleries – situated on the north east tip of the island. Overlooking the Sound of Islay, a vast stretch of sea travelled by many a seafarer, as illustrated by the helmsman on the pack, Bunnahabhain’s wonderfully remote location makes it an idyllic place for whisky distillation.
Bunnahabhain was once ruled by the sea; until 1960, all deliveries arrived by boat. Today, the waves bring a very different cargo – crew and passengers venturing ashore, often from stunning ocean-going yachts.
