Crossing point to the Hebrides, Oban is a well-protected harbour making the city the capital of the West Highlands but also the natural link between the great land and the islands. Founded in 1794, the Oban distillery has been established by the Stevenson brothers. Partly redesigned in the 1890, it is still one of the oldest and smallest distilleries of Scotland.
Engulfed in the small strip of land between the mountains and the sea, the small and lively town of Oban huddled on the distillery. This geographical impediment explains why the distillery never spread and had troubles meeting a growing demand.
The unique character and quality of Oban whiskies ranked the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.
