Mull

Situated between Islay and Jura, the Isle of Mull is Scotland's fourth largest island at 875km². It has a little less than 3000 inhabitants and a single distillery. The Isle of Mull suffered the throes of a history marked by famine and economic decline before rebounding on ecotourism. This island has only one distillery.

An island rich in fauna and flora

The Isle of Mull is nestled in the heart of the Hebrides archipelago, west of Scotland, somewhere not far from the Islands of Jura and Islay. Between its mountains overlooked by Mount Ben More (which culminates at 965m), its immense fine sandy beaches bordered by cliffs and its medieval remains, the island overflows with landscapes all more different and wonderful than the next.

Enthusiasts or the simply curious will be won over by the many animals that can be observed on the coasts and off the island: whales, dolphins, basking sharks, or even rare species of seabirds (including sea ​​eagles), without forgetting the otters that can be seen on the coast.

Two recognized and appreciated whiskies

Its capital, Tobermory, charms with its colourful houses, its pretty port and its craft shops. It is also there that we find the only distillery of the island. Founded in 1795, it has been closed for a few periods due to its isolated location, but since 1990 has produced two whiskies appreciated by connoisseurs: Tobermory (non-peated) and Ledaig (peated) which bears the old name of the village.

Scotland is full of regions, insular or not (like the Highlands or Speyside), which are historically dedicated to the production of whisky. Find them among the hundreds of references in our selection of Scottish whiskies.
