The Bunnahabhain Distillery founded in 1881 by William Robertson in partnership with Greenlees Bros, is a Scottish distillery located on north side of the island of Islay. Today it has the largest whisky production capacity on the island. The construction of this distillery also triggered the development of houses, a road and also a port in order to ship barley and whisky. Due to its location in Port Askaig, near the sea, Bunnahabhain produces sweet and salty whiskies. Thanks to its equipment and its two pear-shaped stills, this magnificent Scottish Distillery produces a heavy alcohol and which is generally not very peaty. Following the acquisition of the Burn Stewart Distillers group in 2003, Bunnahabhain has since been producing smoked and peated versions of its whisky.
Bunnahabhain means "Mouth of the River" in Gaelic, with reference to its location at the mouth of the strait between the island of Islay and the island of Jura, a real landmark for Scottish sailors, hence the presence of a sailor on the labels of Bunnahabhain bottles.
Bunnahabhain is pronounced Bou-na-ha-venn.
