Tobermory Distillery Comments
Only distillery in Mull.
Some bottlings in the past have been called Ledaig.
Tobermory is now only made with unpeated malted barley and Ledaig will be available in small quantities made with peated barley.
The whisky produced here is aged at Burn Stewart's Deanston Distillery in the Highlands.
