Islay Whisky

The isle of Islay is only approximately 25 miles long but hosts nine distilleries. Besides the exquisite booze the isle is also a natural beauty spot and even offers golf course for those who require whisky & golf.

If you find nine whisky distilleries too overwhelming in two days, add a day or leave some out. Our tours are all bespoke so you can get us to create exactly what you would like and since we are a small group you can make amendments on the day if for instance the weather changes.

We need to book accommodation, ferries and depending on the seasons distilleries too.
