From all the distilleries that I visited in Scotland, Bunnahabhain distillery definitely was the most charming. The buildings got a real old and authentic feel to them, which I liked a lot. We booked the guided tour in the tiny tiny whisky shop. What a contrast with the modern en spacious shops of most of the distilleries we visited before.
The guide who showed us around was very passionate and very knowledgeable. I found his explanation very clear and liked the fact that it was laced with a bit of humor. He told us that the new owners of Bunnahabhain have big plans for it and are planning on renovating the buildings and constructing a new shop in some of the old warehouses.
I especially loved the location at the seaside, with view on the Paps of Jura. The Bunnahabhain whisky was right up my alley, because it wasn’t too peated, like most of the Islay whisky’s. Highly recommended when visiting Islay.
