Talisker Distillery is the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye.
n 1825, Hugh MacAskill of Eigg acquired Talisker House and the north end of the Minginish peninsula. Five years later, he and his brother had built what was to become one of the world’s most popular distilleries on the shore of Loch Harport. In fact, 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.
