Bunnahabhain Distillery

Built in 1881, the distillery is the heart of the town of Bunnahabhain

Location

Situated in the North East of the hebridean island of Islay, the tiny village of Bunnahabhain was first established in 1881 to house workers from the malt whisky distillery which stands there to this day and still employs the majority of the inhabitants of the village. Offering stunning views of the neighbouring islands of Jura and Mull, Bunnahabhain is a secluded paradise surrounded by natural beauty.

The distillery in the village produces The Bunnahabhain (Bon-a-havn) which is one of the milder Islay whiskies available and its taste varies greatly from other fine spirits to be found on the island of Islay, off the west coast of Scotland.The distillery was built in 1881 and sits below the north-east tip of the island and just north of Port Askaig. It overlooks a narrow belt of water (the Sound of Islay) with a magnificent view of the neighbouring island of Jura (which also has a working distillery) and its famous hills, the "Paps of Jura".
