Situated on the Isle of Mull, the quaint village of Tobermory was founded in 1788 by fishermen who began using it as a resting place during their fishing expeditions in the Sound of Mull. The name Tobermory is derived from the ancient Gaelic word meaning "Mary's Well," and refers to a nearby well on the Isle of Mull that was dedicated to the Virgin Mary centuries ago by Irish monks who lived on the island. In 1798 — just ten years after fishermen began using the port of Tobermory as a resting place — John Sinclair founded Tobermory Brewery and Distillery. Today, Tobermory Distillery is the last remaining distillery on the Isle of Mull, and one of the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. It produces two distinctive styles of whisky: Tobermory Single Malt Scotch Whisky, an unpeated single malt whisky that reflects the heritage and culture of the Isle of Mull, and Ledaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky, a heavily peated single malt whisky that reflects the distillery's location in the Inner Hebrides archipelago. Ledaig 9 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made exclusively from Scottish barley that is dried directly over a peat flame. In addition, the grains used to make Ledaig are malted and mashed with water sourced from Mary's Well, which contributes even stronger notes of smoke and sweet brine to the whisky's flavor profile. After the grains used to make the whisky are milled and mashed, they are fermented for nearly four days in washbacks made of Oregon Pine. Each wash is then twice distilled, first through one of Tobermory's copper-pot wash stills, and again through one of Tobermory's copper-pot spirit stills. This Ledaig is bottled by A. D. Rattray, an independent family owned bottling company that has been blending and maturing single malt Scotch whiskies since 1868. Aged in bourbon hogshead barrels this 9-year-old Island single malt features bold, peaty overtones, underpinned by sweet flavors. Pick up your bottle today!
