Owner: Burn Stewart Distillers

Creation year: 1880


Built by the Greenlees brothers between 1881 and 1893 on the model of a castle of the French Bordeaux region, the Bunnahabhain distillery belongs since 1887 to the Highlands Distillers group after having operated under the name of Islay Distillery.
Extended in 1963, it was temporarily mothballed until 1983. Bunnahabhain was luckier than Port Ellen, definitively closed during the same year.
After having been closed for alteration works during several months, it resumed the production in autumn 2001.
The distillery was sold in may 2003 to Burn Stewart Distillers by Highland Distillers Co. Burn Stewart has been bought by a company based in Trinidad, CL Financial Ltd, who owns Angostura amongst other spirit brands. Other distilleries belonging to Burn Stewart are, Tobermory et Deanston
95% of the production is for blends, amongst others Black Bottle and The Famous Grouse.
