The Bunnahabhain Distillery is located on the Isle of Islay in Scotland. Its history dates back to 1881 when William Robertson co-founded the distillery with William and James Greenlees. In 1883, the whisky production of the distillery was in full swing, then, in 1963, the growing popularity of Scotch whiskies led to the doubling of its stills. The early 1980s saw a decline in the whisky market and the distillery was shut down in 1982, but production quickly resumed two years later. In the years that followed, Bunnahabhain went through several different owners before being acquired by the Distell Group in 2013. The process of making Bunnahabhain whisky begins with malted and lightly peated barley which is combined with “Margadale” spring water heated in the tank to produce the must. Fermentation of the wort then takes place in Oregon pine vats. None of the Single Malt Whiskies produced by Bunnahabhain are chill-filtered. Unlike most Islay whiskies, Bunnahabhain are not heavily peated or smoked.
