Islay is the most southerly of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland and is known as the Queen of the Hebrides.  The island has around 3200 inhabitants and an impressive 130 miles of beautiful coastline.  Islay is probably best known for its malt whiskies and has eight working distilleries.  Whisky is one of the most important sources of income for the island. Besides whisky, Islay has an abundance of wildlife, from seals and otters to geese, waders and golden eagles. The south coast of Islay, Ardbeg Distillery was established by local farmers and distiller John MacDougall, beginning commercial production in 1815. Today it is one of the island’s fastest growing distilleries and prides itself upon using entirely traditional methods of production. Using malted barley sourced from the maltings at Port Ellen, Ardbeg claims to produce the peatiest whisky in Islay. Boasting several official bottlings, Ardbeg has garnered an array of accolades in recent years from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible and at international spirit ratings competitions.
