Bunnahabhain Whisky


Bunnahabhain has developed something of a cult following amongst aficionados for the relative rarity of its whiskies and their singular flavour that is quite unlike the peaty, smoky malts traditionally associated with the island of Islay, off the west coast of Scotland.

Bunnahabhain, founded in 1881, pronounced Bŭ-na-ha-venn and means mouth of the river in Scots Gaelic, referring to the Margadale River that flows close by. The un-chillfiltered range of single malt whiskies represents whisky in its purest form with a full depth of flavour, aroma, colour and character. Nothing is taken away or added to the whisky; it is as natural as it can be and just as it should be, allowing the gentle, subtle notes of the whisky to come through.

Earlier this year, the 18-year-old single malt took the title of Best Islay Single Malt (13 to 20 years) at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It has also just been announced that Bunnahabhain 18-year-old earned master status in its category at the Global Scotch Whisky Masters in the UK, presented by leading industry publication, The Spirits Business. Bunnahabhain 12-year-old was awarded gold at the same competition.
