Description:
The Island of Islay is renowned all over the world for its intensely powerful and charismatic Scotch whiskies. Black Bottle is totally unique in being created from whiskies from all seven of the famous distilleries on Islay. Its spiritual home is the Bunnahabhain distillery in the north-east of the Island.

Black Bottle was created in 1879 by Gordon Graham and Co. based in Aberdeen. The three Graham brothers - (Charles Innes, Gordon and David) original business was tea but they switched their attention to whisky blending. Soon the popularity of the whisky spread through the East Coast fishermen who favoured it on long sea journeys.

Black Bottle's name came from its original bottle design based on black German glass and echoing the traditional pot whisky still. In 1914, following the outbreak of war, production was switched to green glass as it is to be found today.

Black Bottle has long been regarded as one of the smoothest and most balanced of the Scotch Whiskies.

The skilful craft of blending only the finest malt and grain whiskies delivers a wonderfully balanced and whisky experience. Fresh and fruity on the nose it combines full, honeyed and delightfully smoky flavours that set it apart.

The tasting experience is rounded off with a long and warming finish.

Review: Stunningly under-rated blend - has all the virtues of a fine malt balanced by the grain for general drinking. Best with a touch of water, or over ice, when it still holds it\'s flavour and aroma.

Review: Now living in North Cyprus I never fail to bring a couple of bottles back from Dumfries on visits there. Without exception, my friends say "Wow" "Never heard of it".

Producer Information

Bunnahabhain was designed from the start as a high-output malt distillery. Built round a courtyard, in a style that resembles a Bordeaux chateau, the distillery today is little changed. It amalgamated with William Grant and Sons in 1887 to become part of the Highland Distillers group. During 1963 the number of stills were increased from two to four.
Bunnahabhain (meaning 'mouth of the river') shares its name with the village that grew up around it. In effect, development of the distillery created a community dependent upon it for employment. In doing so, an entire village emerged, complete with schoolhouse and village hall.
Prior to the building of the distillery, the adjacent area was inhospitable and uninhabited.
