Talisker

The malted barley used at the Talisker distillery has been bought in from Glen Ord since 1972, when Talisker's onsite maltings were abandoned. The malt has a peat level of 22ppm and the terroir is decidedly brazen; the Hebridean climate punishes the shores of the Isle of Skye, on which Talisker is the sole distillery.

Though the whisky distillery is far from large, its capacity is rather modest at less than two million litres annually, Talisker has attained a sterling reputation and sales are currently at around 100,000 cases per annum. Perhaps this is due to its inclusion in the Classic Malts range, released in 1988. The Talisker whisky distillery was founded in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill. Talisker sits at Skye’s western coast, at Loch Harport. The area is steeped in tradition and local custom; indeed, Scotch Gaelic is still spoken.

In 1898, the whisky distillery became a part of Dailuaine-Talisker Distillers Company under the charge of Thomas Mackenzie. Following his death in 1916, a consortium including Distillers Company Limited acquired the distillery. There are two wash stills and, bizarrely, three spirit stills. The third spirit still, is still in place and dates back to the period before 1928 when Talisker produced triple distilled malt whisky.
