Winning bid: £165.00
Lot number: 079-1907

Towards the latter half of the 18th century, the Duke of Argyll, keen to encourage economic prosperity in the region, offered extremely low rents to people willing to settle on his lands. Two people who took advantage of this opportunity were the Stevenson brothers, who utilised a slate quarry on the island of Belnahua to expedite construction of several buildings, including a brewery, in the mainland fishing village of Oban. It wasn't long until this brewery branched out into distillation, and thus the Oban distillery was born.

The distillery is still relatively small in terms of production, and chooses not to operate at its full capacity, favouring a long fermentation period in an effort to preserve the characteristic style that has won it so many admirers, especially in The United States.

Age: 12 years old

40% ABV / 75cl
