The Bunnahabhain distillery lies on the peaceful, sheltered north-eastern coast of Islay, the most southerly of the Hebridean Islands. Built in 1881 its name comes from the Gaelic, Bunnahabhain (Bu-na-ha-venn), meaning ‘mouth of the river, a reference to the Margadale, the river from whose clear spring waters the whisky is distilled. Bunnahabhain is known for its un-peated whisky, sherry cask aging and a coastal influence coming from aging along the sea, making the whisky very unique and highly complex.
