Produced at Tobermory Distillery on the Isle of Mull for six months of the year, Ledaig is the smokier sister of Tobermory whisky. It is heavily peated with 30-40ppm of phenol, resulting in a robust expression full of sweet smoke and earthy notes.
In 2022, the World Whiskies Awards awarded the Ledaig 18 Year Old the prize of Best Scotch Islands Single Malt. The Ledaig range itself has been lauded with many awards over the years.
The town of Tobermory on the Isle of Mull is famed for its multicolour houses, and was used as the location for the popular children's tv show Balamory.
Tobermory distillery has a visitor centre, and is open to guests every day of the week.
Established in 1798, Tobermory distillery is situated in the heart of the Hebridean capital of the Isle of Mull. Ladaig was in fact the original name for the distillery, when it was founded in the Ledaig area of Mull by John Sinclair. The brand itself was founded in 2007, when Burn Stewart Distillers rejuvenated the original name with a heavily peated 10-year-old expression, after buying the distillery in 1993.
