Whisky & Gin
Although whisky can be produced anywhere in the world, ‘Scotch’ is a protected status granted only to whisky distilled in Scotland and matured there for at least three years in oak casks.
Oban Distillery takes its name from the town where the Highlands meet the Islands and nestles below the steep cliff that overlooks Oban. This coastal location is accurately reflected by the character of the Oban 14 year old single malt whisky.
Oban Distillery is both one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and one of the smallest with just two pot stills. Pre-dating the town of Oban, it was originally established in 1794 by brothers John and Hugh Stevenson. It underwent a refurbishment in the 1890s and there has been little change to the present buildings since then. The distillery’s tours offer visitors the chance to witness the traditional craftsmanship of whisky production first-hand before enjoying complimentary drams of the Oban 14 year old West Highland Malt.
Pixel Spirits is a craft distillery set in the scenic grounds of the Loch Leven Hotel in North Ballachulish, Scottish Highlands. Founded by husband and wife team, Craig and Noru Innes, the distillery has been self-built from scratch, with the help of various friends and family members. This is in the core of their values – handcrafted, bespoke and personal.
The Pixel Spirits Distillery is true to craft, being self-built from the shell of a 17th century A frame barn. They have painstakingly laboured to restore the barn and upgraded it to the standards of a current new build. Led by Craig, the Master Distiller, the Pixel Spirits team hand forage botanicals in the local area to create their artisan gins, which are carefully handcrafted in small batches of less than 100 bottles. They also run a gin making school where you can make your own unique small batch Scottish Gin.
