‘The Queen of the Hebrides’, Islay (pronounced “eye-la“) is located just off the west coast of Scotland. Its mild climate and rich peaty soil make it ideal for creating whisky, and despite having a population of not much more than 3,000, it’s home to no fewer than eight distilleries.

  1. Ardbeg Distillery
  2. Bowmore Distillery
  3. Bruichladdich Distillery
  4. Bunnahabhain Distillery
  5. Caol Ila Distillery
  6. Kilchoman Distillery
  7. Lagavulin Distillery
  8. Laphroaig Distillery
