Month of Whisky | Talisker

Scotch, Irish, American, whisky or whiskey… There are many different types of diverse spirit, all with their own sub-division style, flavour and general appeal. For the duration of March Pig ‘N’ Whistle are featuring four top-notch whiskies and we’d love you to join us for a nip.

The oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye is set on the shores of Loch Harport with dramatic views of the Cuillins. This distillery produces Talisker.

Did you know?

A Scotch Whisky must be made from malted barley or grain with the spirit aged in oak casks no bigger than 700 litres for no less than three years. To be called Scotch Whisky it must be made entirely in Scotland.

History

By as early as 1898, Talisker was one of the best selling malt whiskies in the UK.
Through fire, war and financial crises, this northern outpost – Skye’s oldest distillery – has remained strong: producing consistently fine whiskies which, once tried, are rarely forgotten.
