About the distillery


Caol Ila

Caol Ila is a single malt Scotch whisky distillery located on the island of Islay, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It was founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson and is currently owned by Diageo, one of the world's largest producers of spirits. The distillery sits on the shores of the Sound of Islay, offering stunning views of the island's rugged coastline. Caol Ila produces a range of single malt whiskies, including a 12-year-old, an 18-year-old, and a Distillers Edition, which is finished in Moscatel casks. The whisky produced at Caol Ila is known for its peaty, smoky flavor profile, which is typical of Islay whiskies. This is due in part to the use of malted barley that is dried over peat fires, which imparts a distinctive smokiness to the whisky. Despite its remote location, Caol Ila is a relatively large distillery, with a capacity of 6.5 million liters of alcohol per year. The distillery uses a combination of traditional pot stills and modern condensers to produce its whisky.
