Bunnahabhain, Isle of Islay, Argyll, PA46 7RL, Scotland
Bunnahabhain (pronounced Bu-na-ha-venn) Distillery lies on the isolated north-eastern tip of Islay, close to the Margadale River. Building of the distillery commenced on the site in 1881. At that time the sea offered the easiest access to this remote place and men would battle the ocean to arrive with their barley in preparation for the creation of something quite wonderful. Bunnahabhain is quite distinct from the other single malts of the island, given the wonderfully gentle taste profile for which it is known.
