Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky aged 12 years
From the manufacturer
The most northerly of the Islay distilleries, 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. Overlooking the Sound of Islay, a vast stretch of sea travelled by many a seafarer, as illustrated by the helmsman on the pack, Bunnhabhain’s wonderfully remote location makes it an idyllic place for whisky distillation.
With a rich array of history including the tale of ‘The Wyre Majestic’. In October 1974, finding no berth in Oban, the Wyre Majestic and her sister ship, the Defence, attempted to steam to Fleetwood, north of Blackpool. Story has it that at around eight in the evening the trawler strayed off course and hit the rocks at Rubha a’ Mhail. For eleven long days the skipper stayed aboard attempting to free the vessel on a big tide with the help of the Defence. All to no avail, as the Majestic sits stricken on the rocks at Bunnahabhain to this day. The skipper was given the blame for the grounding as he was below at an ‘inappropriate’ time, although the Mate at the helm admitted he may have been at the wheel in a ‘stupor’.
Bunnahabhain today, is unique in that it is the only distillery on Islay to produce whisky using pure spring water. Bunnahabhain also differs from typical Islay malts with the un-peated aged selection of single malt whisky. Bunnahabhain’s unaged statement whisky’s Ceobanach and Toitech offer a peated selection.
