This site : the distilleries

Français | English


This site is entirely dedicated to Scottish distilleries and their whiskies.

A list of described distilleries is available in the right part of the display.
The distilleries are listed in alphabetical order, with mention of the area while moving the mouse over the name of a distillery.

Map of Scotland

The list of the production areas is also available through the horizontal menu on the top of the screen.
Another way to access the list of distilleries for a given area is to click on it on the map which is situated in the top left corner of each page.

Colours on this site:

On this site, the different page types are identified by a special colour scheme. A distinction is made between general purpose pages, and pages dedicated to the different distilleries, classified in Campbeltown, Islay, the Islands, Lowlands, Northern Highlands, Eastern Highlands, Western Highlands, Central Highlands et Speyside

Besides the individual distilleries (ant their whiskies) descriptions, a page dedicated to the distilleries in the historic context of their creation has been added.

Whisky being above all an important industry in Scotland (before being a great source of pleasure for the consumers), a page listing the distilleries by current owner is also included. Information about the different owners will probably be added in the future.

In order to enhance the quality of the information and of the pictures available on this site, I made a trip in Scotland during the spring 2004. A report and lots of pictures are also published on this site. For a summary of this trip (and links to the different distilleries), please have a look on the page dedicated to this journey.

Last but not least, the whisky available on the market does not always come directly from the producing distillery (or at least is not directly marketed by the distillery). An important part of the single malt market is ensured by independent bottlers. Their role is crucial in the world of whisky, and a series of pages is dedicated to this phenomenon.

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.
