Bunnahabhain Scotch Single Malt 18 Year is a Cinderella story if there ever was one … lightly peated and delicate, complex and refined, it is a must for every whisky-loving prince. Bunnahabhain
distillery was constructed in 1881 by the Greenlees brothers,
and first opened its doors in 1883.
It's located on the island of Islay
, with 11 employees and four massive stills – among the biggest in the industry,
In this tale, the part of Prince Charming is played by Ian MacMillan
. Ian is the Master Distiller for the Scotch Whisky arm of Distell Group
, who own the Bunnahabbain distillery.
Under Ian’s guidance, Bunnahabbain has transformed itself from a production-focused distillery to a quality-focused
one. These days, chill-filtering is taboo, and so is coloring or anything else artificial.
Cinderella is the Whisky itself. Bunnahabbain
is rising from obscurity in a forgotten corner of Islay. And this little beauty cleans up good. Lightly peated, beautifully aged in sherry butts
, and ready for her premier at the ball in a glass slipper … or a glass snifter which would likely be a better choice. If you are a fan of Islay Whisky, this one is your ticket to happily-ever-after.
SmartAss CornerIn “Islay Gaelic,” Bunnahabbain means “mouth of the river.” And indeed, Bunnahabbain sits at the mouth of the Margadale River, whose source is a spring that provides the water for the Whisky.
