“I always try and find something special for the Fèis Ìle releases and with the return of people to Fèis on Islay rather than exclusively online I thought the time was right to bottle some of our oldest casks.

We were delighted to welcome the highest number of visitors to date at the distillery on our Fèis Day this year which was on Thursday 2nd June. The atmosphere was fantastic and everyone was enjoying being back at the distillery in person after three years of being restricted to a virtual festival.
Thanks to everyone who joined us and we hope to see you in 2023! Click here for more info.
