The single malt Ledaig is produced in the Tobermory distillery, the only distillery on the island of Mull, the name comes from Gaelic which translated means 'Safe Haven'.
Unlike Tobermory, Ledaig is distilled from barley malted with peat, the peat is used to dry the malt in the oven, the fumes are absorbed by the barley, keeping the notes assimilated during the rest of the distillation process. Giving the final product the characteristic smoky and peaty notes.

Style: Single Malt.
Breeding: Naturally coloured, whiskies have aged exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels for a minimum of ten years. The water used to make the whisky, from a lake owned by the distillery, rests on peat. The malt has been dried using peat, which gives the whisky its smoky character.
