The name Bunnahabhain is Gaelic and means river mouth. A visit to the distillery will reveal the river running just north of the distillery.

Bunnahabhain Distillery History

Bunnahabhain Distillery was built in 1880/1881 by a partnership which was incorporated in 1882 as the Islay Distillery Co.  Pronounce Boon-a-havn, is situated in the north of Islay, around eight miles north of Port Askaig on the shore of the Sound of Islay.

Bunnahabhain is one of the milder Islay whiskies available and in its taste varies greatly from other fine spirits to be found on the island. The water rises through limestone and is transported by pipeline to the distillery, so it doesnt pick up any peat on the way.
