More information Ledaig 10 Years (Isle of Mull) Whisky
Ledaig 10 years Single malt looks back on a history of more than 220 years.
In 1797 John Sinclair, a local kelp merchant, applied for a lease of 57 acres of land in the area known as Ledaig with the plan to build housing and a distillery.
However, the application was rejected, and he was only granted permission to build a brewery. Not one to give easily, he remained true to his original plan and a year later, Ledaig Distillery was established.
After making its mark on the island for over a hundred years, the Great Depression, and a decade of prohibition in the USA, saw demand for whisky plummet, causing the distillery to stop operating for 41 long years.
Despite the long closure, it seemed the tenacity of its original founder was in the very foundations of the distillery, and it took on a new life in 1993 when it was purchased by Burn Steward Distillers.
The distillery was purchased by Distell in 2013, and after its most recent hiatus in production for much needed maintenance and renovation, they are proud to say Toberory Distillery reopened its doors and fired up the stills once more in 2019. Under the Tobermore Distillery name, they now produce Tobermory and Ledaig Single Malts and Tobermory Gin.
