Product Features

Distillery HistoryBuilt in the centre of Oban as a brewery by town founders John and Hugh Stevenson. Distilling begins 1794. Rebuilt 1890-94 by J. Walter Higgin (Mesolithic remains discovered). Occupys a unique but small town centre site that prevents expansion. Closure announced 1968 but reprieved 1972. One of Scotland's smallest distilleriesJust two small lantern-shaped stills. Slow-condensed in traditional worm tubs that nestle in the rooftops. Cramped conditions led to unusually short lyne arms. Food PairingRich sweetness with a smoky dryness; ideal with rich tastes, buttered tagliatelle with Parmigiano Reggiano, Italian peppered sausages, black pudding, haggis, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, steak and kidney pudding.
