First founded in 1881, Bunnahabhain relied upon the sea trade. Armed only with a small village, a pier and lots of whisky making know-how, our forefathers received supplies by boat and sent adventuring seafarers back to the mainland with casks full of whisky.The Bunnahabhain is one of the milder single malt Islay whiskies available and its taste varies greatly from other spirits to be found on the island of Islay, off the west coast of Scotland.
The company is directly owned by Burn Stewart's South African parent company, Distell.
Built in 1881 its name comes from the Gaelic, Bunnahabhain (Bu-na-ha-venn), meaning 'mouth of the river', a reference to the Margadale, the river from whose clear spring waters the whisky is distilled.
