Our Distillery

Production began at our first distillery in beautiful Lochranza almost 25 years ago.  Many other locations were considered at the time, but the proximity to Loch na Davie provided us with a rather special source of fresh water for distilling.  We knew this would hold us in good stead in the years to come.  Our second distillery opened in the south of the island last year at Lagg, where we make a very unique style of peated single malt.
