Since time began Islay has been associated with whisky. The suitable conditions for growing barley, the distinctive flavour of peat and the damp salt air all combine to produce the very finest single malts.
There is so much to be said about Islay Whisky that the simplest thing to do is to come here and experience it for yourself. The distilleries have their own websites, their own distinctive brands and the only real way to work out which one you favour is to try them on the Island. Bridgend Hotel is a very central location from which you can explore the distilleries; in the meantime have a look at their websites and book a taxi!
