Corry DistilleryCorry Distillery

Founded in 1816
The Isle of Skye is the largest member of the Inner Hebrides islands, on the west side of Scotland. The Corry Distillery sat just to the northwest of the town of Broadford, where Loch Carron and Loch Alsh empty into the Inner Sound.

Very little is know about the Corry Distillery. It was founded by Lachlan McKinnon in 1816, but only operated for ten years -- closing in 1826. The foundation ruins of the original structure are plain to see by the side of the road.

The rest of their story is currently lost to lore and myth. The footprint of the foundation hints that there may have been two stills at one time, but this is speculation. And we are afraid speculation is all we have to offer, until more documentation is discovered.

There are hundreds of islands scatered arond the perimeter of the Scottish mainland, but only a handful of them - ArranMullJuraSkye and Orkney - are home to a distillery. 

Island Whiskies are tempered by saline shores, brewing storms and the purply peated moors. But when it comes to flavours, shapeshifting is an island game. Though most Island Whiskies are salted by the sea and you can find plenty of challenging drams full of maritime notes here, some are sweet and herbal.
