Our misty, maritime location with its abundance of heather and peat, is perfectly echoed in the malt whisky produced at our home, one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland.
You can find Oban in the bustling seaside resort that has grown up around Oban distillery in the two centuries since it set up home in a fishing village. The West Highland single malt is still produced in the same unhurried, traditional fashion that was developed when the distillery opened in 1794.
One of Scotland’s oldest and smallest distilleries, Oban was built in 1794; the West Highland port city of the same name has grown around it.
The rich flavour of Oban comes from being made in two small stills and slow-cooled in tubs outside to maximise depth of flavour.
Oban is the one Single Malt Scotch Whisky in which the rich, complex flavours of the Highlands meet and mingle with the peaty, maritime character of the Islands.
