The Isles

Islay Lowlands The Scottish coast is surrounded by isles where whisky is produced, specially on the West coast (Mull, Skye, Arran and Jura) and on the North (Orkney)
The most important island from a whisky point of view is Islay, but this one is considered as a production area on its own.

For a quick description and a map of the producing areas, please click on the map on the left.

For detailed information about a distillery, you can:
- click on a distillery on one of the maps below (just moving the mouse above a still or a pagoda roof will display the name of the distillery)
- click on the name or the picture of the distillery in the table under the map.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
