    Tobermory Single Malt Whisky

    Tobermory is the only distillery on the Isle of Mull, set in its namesake town on the northern shore of the island. It was founded in 1798 by John Sinclair, originally with the name of Ledaig distillery. It is one of the few remaining distilleries that were founded prior to the Excise Act of 1823, although it was closed down in 1837 and was not revived again until 1878.

    The facility was purchased by John Hopkins & Co. in 1890 and then passed to DCL in 1916. This looked to stabilise the future of the distillery, but it was closed again in 1930 and used as a power station for over 40 years. It initially re-opened in 1972 but only on a stop-start basis as it changed hands between multiple owners before finally resuming permanently in 1989 under the ownership of Burn Stewart Distillers (whose parent company CL Financial now owns the distillery).

    There are actually two brands of single malt whisky originating at Tobermory distillery; both Tobermory and Ledaig (the original name for the distillery) branded single malt whisky is produced there. The distinction between the two brands is in the level of peat used in the whisky - Ledaig whisky is lightly peated, whereas Tobermory whisky is entirely unpeated. The most common Tobermory bottle is the 10 year old expression which is part of the core range.
