Torabhaig 2017 The Legacy Series / Inaugural Release

The idea for Torabhaig, a Gaelic-speaking distillery on the Isle of Skye was conceived by Sir Iain Noble. A fierce proponent of the Gaelic language, he was the co-founder of the Edinburgh merchant bank, and believed Gaelic was the key to unlock economic regeneration in the Highlands and Islands. He founded Praban na Linne (Gaelic Whisky Co) in 1976 and obtained planning permission to convert the 19th century farm steading at Torabhaig into a distillery around 2002. Sadly, he did not live to see the idea realised. However, around the time of his death, Mossburn Distillers were looking for a site on Skye to build their own distillery, which ended up with them picking up the Torabhaig torch in 2010. Works began on the conversion of the steading in 2013 and the first spirit flowed from its stills at the Isle of Skye's second distillery four years later. Its spirit is peated to 50ppm and 100% of its production is reserved for single malt.

This was the distillery's inaugural release, titled The Legacy Series. It was introduced at the beginning of 2021 and is a 2017 vintage drawn from first-fill bourbon barrels.
