The distillery, the only one on the island, was built in 1798 and is situated at the southern end of the harbour. This charming bay is home to one of the most colourful villages in Europe
Tobermory Distillery lies towards the northern end of the Isle of Mull, one of Scotland's most rugged and windswept west coast islands. Mull is regarded by many as the most picturesque of the Hebrides. Tobermory comes from the Gaelic word meaning 'well of Mary'.
Just like Tobermory bay, the Tobermory 10 year old malt whisky is indeed 'a golden treasure'. Its wonderfully unique and mysterious character will surprise discerning malt lovers the world over. Unpeated malted barley creates a unique golden liquid with a magical heritage inspired by the Spanish Galleon whose treasure still rests close to the distillery. Myth has it that the islanders wanted to create 'a water of life' as golden as the treasure itself from the bay known as a 'safe and lucky haven' in the hope one taste would bring the same luck to all whose lips it passed.
The distillery has a small but well stocked shop and welcomes visitors wishing to take a guided tour of the site, enjoying a dram at the same time.
