About the distillery

Tobermory distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery situated on the Hebridean island of Mull, Scotland in the village of Tobermory. The distillery which was formerly known as Ledaig, was founded in 1798 and has changed hands several times, having undergone a number of periods of closure.

The only distillery on Mull, it is currently owned by Burn Stewart Distillers, a subsidiary of Distell Group Limited of South Africa. Its main product, Tobermory single malt, is used in the blends Scottish Leader and Black Bottle. The distillery also produces a smaller amount of peated whisky, which remains known under the former name, Ledaig.

Pronunciation : "led-chig"

Other Information

A rare 42 year old bottling from the Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull. The packaging exhibits oil paintings of Tobermory by Angus Stewart (to which the famous Tobermory Cat paintings can be attributed to). Distilled on 1973, not long after the re-awakening of the distillery, this expression is possibly the rarest whisky ever made at the Tobermory Distillery. 

This is bottle number 185 of 650.
