Ledaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky is produced at the Tobermory Distillery, which is the only distillery on the picturesque Hebridean Isle of Mull.

Thus, of all the world-famous whisky distilling regions of Scotland ( Speyside, Highland, Islay, the various Islands, Lowland, Campbeltown) only Tobermory and Ledaig represent an opportunity to experience Malt Whisky from this particular region.

Ledaig, unlike Tobermory, is distilled from heavily peated malted barley. During the malting process, burning peat is used to dry the barley in a kiln. The reek from the burning peat is absorbed by the barley through the husk of the grain, and the reek remains through the mashing, fermentation and distillation processes, eventually leading to a superior single malt with a highly distinctive peaty, smoky taste.

That malt is Ledaig, a superb, intricate Island Malt Scotch Whisky.
