La distillerie Bunnahabhain
Bunnahabhain est la plus septentrionale des distilleries d’Islay ; juste au nord de Caol Ila, aussi au bord du Sound of Islay, elle fait également face à l’île de Jura. On l’atteint par une route étroite, longue de 11 kilomètres. Pour les poids lourds le trajet peut se révèler très avontureux.
Cette route, qui avait été construite autrefois exprès pour la distillerie, commence peu avant Port Askaig.
Bunnahabhain, dont le nom signifie « embouchure de la rivière », a donné son nom au village qui s’est créé autour ; en effet, c’est la distillerie qui a permis la fondation du village, par le travail régulier qu’elle a apporté à ses habitants. Auparavant, la lande, inhospitalière, était quasi déserte. 
La distillerie Bunnahabhain a été construite en 1881 dans une petite crique isolée de la région d’Argyll, à côté de Port Askaig.

Islay, Isle of
The island of Islay (pronounces Eye-La), the most southerly of all the Hebrides, lies on the east coast of Kintyre.
It is flat, green and largely composed of peat (water on the island is brown with it mixed with peat). The harsh winter winds push the salty clouds far on the island, allowing the peat to soak in water, which is again dried by salty breezes of the sea. All these features make the charm of whiskeys from Islay, of great importance for some and less for others.
It has undoubtedly a privileged position in the world of whisky. The island has nine distilleries in activity and is carried by many whisky’s specialists as an autonomous region. It still remains parts of the installation of two other distilleries, such as warehouses, or in one case, an oven. In the best of times, there were here nearly 26 distilleries.
