Bunnahabhain Distillery

Bunnahabhain distillery was built in 1881. From the start, the project was a massive task. A pier to load and unload barrels was needed. A road and houses for the distillery workers was also needed. Some £30 000 (£2.6 million in today's money) were spent building it. 

While many distilleries on the island supplied blenders and sold their spirit as single malt, Bunnahabhain did not. All of its production was being sold to blenders. Three major blends, Cutty Sark, Famous Grouse and Black Bottle used the spirit from this distillery.

In the 1963 the production capacity of the distillery was doubled. Less than two decades later, the distillery was mothballed for a couple of years. When the distillery reopened, it kept on supplying blenders. The owners of the distillery, The Edrington Group, sold it in 2003 to Burn Stewart. Their parent company went bust in 2009 and South African distributors Distell acquired it. Bunnahabhain has gone from strength to strength ever since.

The spirit produced by the distillery is light and delicate in style. this is achieved by the usage of huge pot stills filled with little wash during distillation. Very little peated spirit is produced.

Fib Whisky 

Proud Fifeans, the founders of this independent bottling company picked a name that would evoke tradition and local roots. The name Fib was chosen after one of the sons of mythological Pictish king Cruithne who gave the kingdom of Fife to his son Fib. 

Fib whisky emphasises transparency and bottles its whiskies at natural cask strength without adding artificial colouring nor using chill-filtration.
