Island Whiskys

Island Whiskys

The whiskies in this category vary considerably, but some say they are influenced by their seaside locations, being often salty.  There is a tendency towards a peaty, smoky character as many peat their barley although not to the extent of their Islay cousins.  The island group does not include Islay, which is treated as a region in its own right.  The newest Island distillery is Arran which was built in the mid 1990ís.

Jura, is a neighbour to the Islay malts. Moving North there is Tobermory on Mull which also distills the more heavily peated Ledaig. On Skye there is the well known Talisker, then on Orkney the two Northerly distilleries of Scapa and Highland Park. The Cheese and Wine Shop has a full range of Highland Malts; if you dont see what you need, please call us on 01823 662899. they havent all made it across to the web yet!
