We are the product of our people, our location and our history. Our whisky, like our island home, is shaped by a wild climate and stormy seas, and by the Vikings who settled here over 1,000 years ago, leaving their mark on our people and our culture. There are people, near and far, whose passion and skill ensures that they – and our whisky – stand apart.
