On Islay there are 8 working distilleries and 1 non working distillery in total.  The distilleries are called Lagavulin, Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Bowmore, Bruichladdich, Coal Ila, Bunnabhain, Kilchoman.  Islay is the best island known for producing its whiskey. Islay distilleries produce lots of bottles a year and thousands of liters.  Mundells deliver the barley to all the Distilleries except for Laphroaig who make their own like only 6 other distilleries in Scotland.  Every year the distilleries hold an open day to represent their new bottle of whiskey and Ardbeg have there own theme.  They all have it towards the end of Spring.

MRS CLARK ADDS: I think Bruichladdich may grow their own barley as well.

  1. I really enjoyed reading all the blog entries. You all create a very vivid picture of life on Islay. I am planning to visit the island at the end of May and your blog certainly provides some very useful information. Well done and thank you.

  2. Thank you for telling us about the distilleries.We didn’t know what they were at first. Now we know that whiskey is made from barley and is produced in distilleries.
    In Australia a popular drink is beer.

  3. That island sounds fun!!!
