There is a healthy rennaisance in the Island distilling industry. There are eight Island distilleries with a few macro stills in the making.

The Arran commenced distilling less than 11 years ago. Independently owned this still puts out some interesting 46% alc/vol Malts and although still young gets better and better each year.

The Highland Park on Orkney goes from strength to strength under the Edrington Group. Here is a dram of epic possibilities. Malting is done in the old fashioned way turned by hand, batches are rested before bottling and there is a great ethos for perfection eminating from the distillery.


The Isle of Jura is a light oily malt. This is owned presently by the Whyte and MacKay Group.


The Scapa on Orkney operates intermintently. Owned by Chivas it is almost a forgoten outpost of this large corporation that runs so much of the Distilling around speyside.

The Talisker at Carbost, Isle of Skye. This peaty dram can be sintilatingly good when bottled above the standard 45.8% alc./vol. and with age there is nothing finer.


The Tobermory aka Ledaig on the Island of Mull has two youthful editions. The Tobermory is made from unpeated maltings and the Ledaig from peated maltings.


All of the Island Malts have there own charator. Vive la Difference!
