The History of Tobermory Distillery

The whisky capital of the island of Mull was built by the Stevenson family from Oban, however the Tobermory distillery has had a much more chequered history than its relative on the mainland, and its owners have been a lot more unusual.

It is believed that Ledaig’s earlest incarnation was in the form of peated malt, but in more recent years, the Tobermory distillery has produced and bottled both unpeated and peated whiskies as both Tobermory and Ledaig. Today, Ledaig is now solely the heavily peated variant to resolve the confusion that this caused and equal amounts of both peated and non-peated whiskies are produced. The time of the fermentation period with this brand is quite short, however it is actually the Toberymory distillery’s unique shaped stills which characterise the whisky’s style. Both have boil bulbs as well as an S shaped kink within the lyne arms and this all increases reflux.

The Tobermory distillery was first established in 1798 with the name Ledaig by John Sinclair, however, similar to lots of other small distilleries of its type, it foundered and went silent during the period 1837 to 1878. It went through the hands of a number of owners, and then finally in 1916 it was purchased by DCL. It continued producing whisky until 1930 and then fell silent once more for more than 40 years.

It was not until 1972 that Tobermory was brought back into production. It was one of several old distilleries which were brought back into commission as part of the boom in the whisky industry following the war and was reopened as part of a strange joint venture formed between some “Panamanian interests”, Pedro Domecq, the sherry producer and a shipping company in Liverpool. As might be expected, this unique arrangement lasted for just 3 years, however during this brief period the distillery’s capacity was increased and its buildings were completely renovated.

Another period of closure was ended when a Yorkshire property company with its base in Cleckheaton purchased the distillery, intending to turn some of its buildings into holiday properties. Its other buildings were brought into use to store cheese. In 1982 it closed yet again, this time for eleven years when Burn Stewart, its current owner and now part of the Distell group, bought it.

Distell announced that the distillery would be undergoing another major refurbishment in January 2017 which would lead to its closure for a period of two years. Nevertheless, its visitor centre would stay open during the period of closure. Today, Tobermory’s single malt bottlings are bottled at an abv of 46.3% and are non-chill filtered.
