Tobermory distillery or, as it's sometimes called, Ledaig is the only distillery on the island of Mull just over the water from Oban on the west coast of Scotland. The pretty little town nestles round a bay beneath steep cliffs. The houses are gaily painted with the distillery at the far end of the town. A superb and memorable place, reminding me more of England's west country or that of Eire.


Tobermoray is an old distillery, founded in 1798 and becoming fully established in 1823. Opened and closed numerous times, it closed almost terminally in 1930, a depressed time for whisky. However in 1972 it reopened after 42 years but even when it re-opened it had numerous periods of silence when funds ran low. Sadly some of the quality at this time was excellent and others very poor due to cheap poor quality barrels. The styles were also variable, sometimes full and other times light. The distillery closed again in 1975 until 1978 but again soon ran into trouble. The warehouses on the other side of the road were sold and converted to flats (super view) to raise money, however this meant the new spirit had to be transported off the island to mature. This still wasn't enough inspite of a visitor centre opening. In 1993 the distillery was bought out by Burn Stewart and the future looks secure.


There are four stills, though only two were originally used by the latest owners. Ledaig is made from peated malt barley, wheras the Tobermory label is made from unpeated malt. The new make is matured at Deanston Distillery in the Highlands.
