ISSUED BY DKC (DE KOCK COMMUNICATIONS) FOR BUNNAHABHAIN SINGLE MALT WHISKIES
The unmistakably elegant, award-winning Bunnahabhain single malt makes the perfect gift for someone who appreciates exclusivity this festive season. Situated on the world-famous whisky-producing Isle of Islay, the Bunnahabhain distillery overlooks the Sound of Islay. It is here, in the warehouses built in 1881 that the single malt whiskies quietly mature and develop the gentle characteristics and noticeable sea influence evident in the finish.
Bunnahabhain (pronounced Bū-na-ha-venn) is the only distillery on Islay which uses water from natural springs in the bed of the Margadale River. It also uses unpeated malted barley in the production of the hand-crafted range of 12, 18 and 25 year old single malt whiskies. For this reason, the whiskies are known as the “gentle taste of Islay”.
Created by master distiller, Ian MacMillan, the whiskies are un-chillfiltered, a return to the whisky-making tradition of Bunnahabhain’s distillers dating back many years. With nothing taken away or added, the whisky retains all of its depth of flavour, aromas, colours and character. This allows the gentle, subtle notes of the malts to come through and provides a purer taste, nose and appearance, fairly close to what MacMillan personally selects from the ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks.
The Bunnahabhain range of single malt whiskies are available from fine whisky and liquor outlets and retail for about R590 (12 year old), R900 (18 year old) and R2 400 (25 year old).
