Islay Whisky

(eye-LA)

Known as the 'Queen of the Hebrides', Islay has the reputation for producing the most powerful, heavily peated whiskies in Scotland, if not the world. Some of the giants of the whisky world, such as Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig are produced here. With heavily peated whiskies much more in vogue, there has been a renewed focus on the region and its whiskies in the last decade.

Currently there are 9 operational distilleries, with a futher 2 planned and the revival of the Iconic Port Ellen distillery announced as well.  This all suggests a busy and vibrant time for Scotland's smallest whisky region (you can cross the Island in half an hour!)
