The MacAskill brothers founded the Talisker distillery in 1830, located on the northwest side of the Isle of Skye, it is the oldest of the two distilleries situated on the island. The Isle of Skye is the most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides, an area little protected from the storms of the Atlantic Ocean. Talisker is the only single malt made on the shores of Loch Harport and its distillery is one of the most famous in the world. Its soft and peaty water comes not from streams or rivers, but from the 21 underground springs of nearby Hawk Hill.
