The Islay Whisky

Browse to the Islay Whisky site to find out more about the Islay’s seven distilleries and its Lost Distilleries. Use the Islay Map to help you get around – or try Tourist Info if you are interested in making the pilgrimage. Though you may find it remarkable that an island only 25 miles long can support seven distilleries, at one time the island supported twenty one distilleries. The distilleries in the south of the island – Lagavulin, Ardbeg and Laphroaig – produce the most strongly flavoured, phenolic whiskies in Scotland. The distilleries to the north – Bunnahabhain, Bowmore, Caol Ila and Bruichladdich tend to be of a lighter character.
