The distillery, which was formerly known as Ledaig, was founded in 1798 and has changed hands several times, having undergone a number of periods of closure. The only distillery on Mull, it is currently owned by Burn Stewart Distillers, a subsidiary of Distell Group Limited of South Africa. Its main product, Tobermory single malt, is used in the blends Scottish Leader and Black Bottle. The distillery also produces a smaller amount of peated whisky, which remains known under the former name, Ledaig. They also make a gin named after the colourful town.
Tobermory 12 Years Old
One of Scotland’s oldest distilleries is celebrating its return to production following a 24 month intermission. During that time the distillery team at Tobermory have been obsessively perfecting and crafting a new signature expression – Tobermory 12 Year Old, launched in 2019. It has a palate of vibrant fruit and spice with a subtle saltiness reflective of our harbour waters here at Tobermory. Nose – Rich fruit, orange and citrus notes, fresh floral hints and rich oak with vanilla and spice. Palate – Sweet orange and citrus, creamy caramel and rich vanilla with spicy hints of cinnamon and clove. Finish – Long and lingering vanilla and spice.
