Caol Ila

(kowel-EEL-ah)

In Gaelic Caol Ila means “Sound of Islay”. Hector Henderson founded the distillery in 1846 near Port Askaig in a remote cove on Islay. The water that the distillery uses is from Loch nam Ban (Torrabolls Loch).

The Caol Ila distillery underwent an extension in 1879 and then during the years between 1972-1974 the entire distillery was modernized. The whisky produced at Caol Ila is mainly used in Johnnie Walker and Bell’s blended whisky, however they do have a range of very rare single malts. Caol Ila does have a visitor centre and shop.
