Bunnahabhain Single Malt Whisky from the sound of Islay
Pronounced ‘Bunn-na-ha-venn’, meaning ‘mouth of the river’ in Scots Gaelic, the distillery is the most remote on Islay, nestled in Bunnahabhain Bay on the shores of the Sound of Islay. Bunnahabhain is known for its spectacular surroundings and delicious signature un-peated Islay Single Malt Whisky.
What sets Bunnahabhain apart is the signature un-peated style, and the rich, complex layers of each cask matured in the warehouses on the shores of the Sound of Islay.
Built in 1881 Bunnahabhain is the only distillery on the island to use pure, spring water – the Margadale river. This pure, non-peated water contributes towards the light signature character of Bunnahabhain. With the exception of the Moine whiskies all the Bunnahabhain whiskies use non-peated barley. The tallest stills on Islay, which have unusually long swan necks, produce a lighter, more delicate flavour profile.
All of the range whiskies are non-chillfiltered and natural colour, meaning nothing is added and nothing is taken away. This allows the true natural character of our Islay Single Malt to shine through.
