Talisker Distillery is one of the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye, it is set on the shores of Loch Harport Carbost, with dramatic views of the Cuillins, Scotland. Producing a sweet, full-bodied single malt.
The distillery was founded in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill. All the stills use worm tubs (condensing coils) rather than a modern condenser, which are believed to give the whisky a "fuller" flavour. During this early period, the whisky was produced using a triple distilling method, but changed to the more conventional double distilling in 1928. Talisker was acquired by Distillery Company in 1925 and is now part of Diageo.
