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. A pale gold coloured whisky with a mellow, full-bodied nose - slightly sweet with a floral, leafy note. Rounded on the palate with alty, burnt sugar and a hint of treacle. The finish is long and slightly drying with a touch of oak.
