Product details

Bunnahabhain is one of the few unpeated Islay whiskies, founded all the way back in 1883 in the village of the same name on the north-east coast of the island. But let’s start with how to pronounce it! First off, the distillery is pronounced ‘boo-na-harv-en’, and Stiùireadair is pronounced ‘stew-rahdur’, which means ‘helmsman’ in Scottish Gaelic.

Stiùireadair pays homage to the rugged, dramatic shoreline that the distillery calls home,
combining the coastal, savoury whisky with both first- and second-fill ex-sherry casks. While peat smoke typically defines Islay whisky for most people, this shows a gentler side to the island, brought out and balanced by the fruity, nuttier notes from the maturation. It’s all sea spray, toasted nuts, and dried fruit in this one!
