The Hebridean Isle of Mull owes its fame to Sanctuary of Iona, Fingal's Cave and the charming Tobermory Bay as well as its climate, heavy seas and an abundance of peat.
The Ledaig (pronounced Led-chig, meaning 'safe haven' in Gaelic), is the peaty island single malt Scotch Whisky from the only distillery on the Isle of Mull. The legendary distillery, at the water's edge, is the safe haven for this wild peaty spirit.
The Ledaig draws its water from the dark aromatic peat lochans nesting in Mull's high moors that are wind swept by moist sea breezes, and mills only specially selected peat-dried Scottish barley to achieve a very individual flavour.

A Golden Gem of the Isles
Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distilled, Matured and Bottled

in Scotland
Burn Stewart Distillers, Glasgow

A wonderfully peated island single malt from the enchanting Tobermory Distillery on the unspoilt Isle of Mull.
This Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky is part of “The Ledaig Collection”. A fine selection of fresh single malts, full of live and charisma from the only distillery on the Isle of Mull.

The name is pronounced “Led – Chig” and translates to “Safe Haven”from the Gaelic tongue,
aptly named after the area on which the distillery sits, neatly sheltered in Tobermory bay.

This intriguing liquid has a simple nose with distinct peatiness and a prevalence of fresh sea air.

One taste leaves youin no doubt of its unique Hebridean Island heritage, with evidence of Tobermory
seaweed and dry smoke. A subtle milk chocolate flavouring leaves a lasting impression on the palate. the long and pleasant finish has a satisfying ginger sweetness with a mellow soft warmth.

The bonfire diminished as salty seawater washed over the embers. Charred logs, smoul -
dering wet leaves and seaweed mingled with the wet sand. The chef meanwhile had
prepared a sumptuous feast of tuna sushi with soy sauce and wasabi, pickled ginger,
creamy oysters with vinaigrette, sticky barbequed ribs, freshly cured meats, lobster

raspberries, tinned mandarin and apple and custard sweets with just a hint of liquorice.

Tobermory, Isle of Mull, Argyll. Licentiehouder: Ledaig Distillery. Eigendom van Burn Stewart Distillers Pic, Glasgow

Burn Stewart Februari 2003
Ian Bankier, manager van Burn Stewart, maakte bekend dat CL. Financial te Trinidad en Tobago, proucent van rum en Angostura Bitter, die al een aandeel hadden in Burn Stewart van 28,9 %, dit aandeel hebben verhoogd tot 52 % en het nu dus voor het zeggen heeft.

Peated and unpeated whisky from Tobermory – Mull’s only whisky distillery – was once used for both Ledaig and Tobermory. Now Ledaig is a purely peated malt, and a heavily-peated one at that.

The portfolio consists of just two permanent expressions, a 10-year-old and an 18-year-old, both of which are non-chill-filtered and bottled at 46.3% abv in the same fashion as their Tobermory siblings.

Although the modern incarnation of the brand did not surface until 2007, its history dates back to 1798 when John Sinclair established Ledaig distillery on the Isle of Mull.

At the start of the 19th century Ledaig had a good run, but by 1837 fell on hard times and was subsequently mothballed for 41 years. It reopened in 1878 and operated under a succession of owners until it was purchased in 1916 by Distillers Company Limited. Just 14 years later it was closed again.

An unlikely consortium comprised of a Liverpool shipping company, Sherry producer and other overseas interests, purchased and renovated the distillery and renamed it Tobermory. The Ledaig name, it seemed, was destined for the history books.

Another period of silence ensued, this time where several of the buildings were transformed into holiday lets – with some used as cheese stores – but the site was eventually saved in 1993 when its current owner, Burn Stewart Distillers, stepped in.

Ledaig using peated malt from Port Ellen at 39 ppm, Tobermory has its malt from Simpsons and is unpeated.
Prior to Burn Stewart’s involvement, the distillery had gone through periods of producing both peated and unpeated whiskies, but after taking control – and ridding the site of any remaining cheesy residue – the company made a concerted effort to separate the distillations, producing peated spirit for six months of the year, and unpeated for the remainder.

In 2007 Burn Stewart reignited Tobermory’s original name under the Ledaig brand, which was launched as a heavily peated 10-year-old single malt in contrast to the unpeated Tobermory. It was followed a decade later by the introduction of an 18-year-old with a more fruity, Sherried profile than its younger sister.

In 2015 the limited edition 42-year-old Ledaig Dùsgadh was released for £3,000 a bottle. With a name meaning ‘awakening’ in Gaelic, the expression contains some of the first spirit distilled when Tobermory was reopened in 1972 by the odd consortium.

DISTELL UNVEILS LIMITED EDITION MALTS RANGE
August 2018
South African spirits company Distell is launching a new annual collection of limited edition single malts from its Bunnahabhain, Deanston and Tobermory distilleries.

Bunnahabhain 2008 Mòine Bordeaux Red Wine Cask Matured and Deanston 2008 Brandy Cask Finish
First Wave: Malts from Deanston and Bunnahabhain are on shelves before the rest of the range
The 2018 collection is comprised of six whiskies, each of which has been matured or finished in casks seasoned with Sherry, brandy or red wine.

Derek Scott, brand manager for malt whisky at Distell, said: ‘Using the flavour profile each brand is known for as the guide to select the finishing casks, we’ve been able to create six limited release whiskies that are not just of interest for their points of difference, but are also fantastic drams that remain true to the whisky’s style.’

Two of the six editions are available now, with the remaining four released in September.

Bunnahabhain 2008 Mòine Bordeaux Red Wine Cask Matured is already available in global specialist whisky stores, priced around £75.

The peated single malt, which is bottled at a cask strength of 58.1% abv, is fully matured in red wine casks from Bordeaux to provide ‘rich grape and peppery smoke notes’ with ‘hints of toffee and tobacco’ on the palate.

Deanston 2008 Brandy Cask Finish is also currently available, priced around £60. The expression, which is bottled at 56.4% abv, was matured for seven years in American oak casks before being transferred to Brandy butts for an additional maturation period, providing ‘rich oak with a distinctive dried fruit and brandy influence’ on the palate.

The remaining four expressions in the 2018 collection, which will be released globally from 12 September, include malts from Tobermory distillery on Mull – including its peated variant Ledaig – and Bunnahabhain on Islay:

Tobermory 2005
Fino Cask Finish, £110
Ledaig 1998
Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish, £130
Ledaig 1998
PX Cask Finish, £150
Bunnahabhain
Palo Cortado Cask Finish, £275

Scott added: ‘We’re lucky to have three very different distilleries and this showcase will allow us to share the stories of each and highlight how these are reflected in the bold new releases.’

LEDAIG KICKS OFF NEW DOUGLAS LAING SERIES
August 2018
Independent bottler Douglas Laing & Co. will launch a 21-year-old single cask Ledaig as the first in a new web-exclusive series of whiskies.

Birthday bottle: The Private Stock series celebrates Douglas Laing's 70th anniversary
The whisky has been matured in a refill hogshead, and described as having flavours of ‘sweet phenols up front, with barley, peat and burnt toast’.

Bottled at a cask strength of 51% abv, the whisky is ‘particularly limited’, with only 84 bottles scheduled for release.

The Ledaig bottling is the first entry in Douglas Laing’s Private Stock series, a range of limited edition whiskies selected from the family-owned company’s private whisky collection to commemorate its 70th anniversary.

Fred Laing, chairman of Douglas Laing & Co., which was founded in Glasgow in 1948, said: ‘Reaching our 70 years anniversary has meant not just a time for celebration, but a time for reflection.

‘We owe our success to our loyal customers and opening up our private stock collection of whiskies is one way of saying thank you.’

Each bottle will be signed by Laing and packaged in an illustrated wooden presentation box.

The Ledaig single cask will be sold exclusively on douglaslaing.com for £124.99 at 9am on 31 August. All future entries in the series will also only be available online.

The company also announced further details of its new Clutha distillery, visitor centre and headquarters in Glasgow this week.

1780s - Soaring mountains and glorious coastline create a majestic backdrop for ancient castles, historic monuments and our very special distillery.

Tobermory was established in 1788 by the British Fisheries Society. Until then the town had been a small farming settlement, built around the medieval church at the top of the hill.

1790s - The turn of the century inspired a bold new vision and in 1797 John Sinclair, a local kelp merchant, applied for the lease of 57 acres of land on the area known as Ledaig in order to build housing and a distillery.

Distilling was, however, banned in Britain between 1795 and 1797 in order to conserve grain stores for the War of the First Coalition with France. As a result, his application was rejected and he was only granted permission to build a brewery.

However, Sinclair was not a man to give up that easily. He remained true to his original plan and a year later Ledaig Distillery was established.

1930s - Over the next hundred years the distillery made its mark on the island. Nevertheless, the Great Depression of the 1930s, coupled with a decade of prohibition in the USA, saw demand for whisky plummet. The distillery would cease to operate for 41 long years.

1970s - In 1971, the Ledaig Distillery (Tobermory Ltd.) reopened and this momentous year was marked by a limited edition release. But the 1970s were to bring their own economic troubles and the years ahead were punctuated with highs, lows and further closures. The 1980s saw the distillery warehouses being converted into flats and showed signs that this was the beginning of the end.

1990s - But it seemed the tenacity of its original founder was in the very foundations of the distillery and like a phoenix rising from the ashes, it took on new life in 1993 when it was purchased by Burns Stewart Distillers.

Present - Since then our distillery has become the jewel in the island’s crown. The world has changed unimaginably since we produced our first single malt almost two hundred years ago, but we haven’t. At Tobermory we still do things the traditional way, by hand. Just the way John Sinclair would have wanted.
