Since 1881, the combination of the only distillery on Islay with access to natural Magadale spring water and the tallest stills on the Islay has resulted in Bunnahbahin being sought out by the keenest of explorers. There was a time when the only real way to the Bunnahabhain Distillery on the North Eastern tip of the Island was by sea. Men, like the Helmsman on our bottle, would risk their lives battling the elements to bring barley for the whisky. Bunnahabhain is quite distinct from the other single malts of Islay, given the wonderfully gentle taste profile for which it is known. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, it has been created using un-peated and malted barley in a time honored distillation process, and secondly, this isolated coastal sanctuary takes advantage of the pure spring water source. Aged in ex-Bourbon and ex-Oloroso Sherry casks on Islay, Bunnahabhain is the perfect balance of rich sweetness and natural smokiness.
