BUNNAHABHAIN DISTILLERY 2005
Bunnahabhain (bun-na-ha-ven) distillery takes you to a very nice part of Islay. Especially on a nice sunny day, going up to the distillery is a real treat. Looking across the Sound of Islay, you see the beautiful Paps of Jura set in the sun. Believe it or not, on both my visits to the distillery I had perfect weather and was able to enjoy these spectacular views.
The distillery itself is worth a visit too. Especially the onion shaped stills are impressive to see.
For years Bunnahabhain has been part of the Edrington Group (previously Highland Distillers), and had to take a back bench towards their key malts, Macallan and Highland Park. As they decided to sell Bunnahabhain, Burn Stewart took their chance and bought the distillery. This is their third distillery, next to Tobermory and Deanston, and they have already put a lot of work in to the distillery.
If you ever visit Islay, be sure to also take up the road to Bunnahabhain. It is surely worth to travel this road.
