Bunnahabhain was founded in 1881 with production beginning in 1883. The distillery produced a steady stream of whisky for a century until Bunnahabhain unfortunately mothballed in 1982. Fortunately, the distillery resumed production in 1984, however, they were producing considerably less whisky than they were before their closure. Luckily, Bunnahabhain managed to work their way back to their former glory over time. In 2019, the distillery began an exciting three-year long refurbishment to spruce up the historic site.
