Tobermory Distillery produces two distinct single malts made for half the year each: a non-peated Tobermory and a heavily-peated LedaigThe distillery has a history dating back to the 18th century. Tobermory is a picturesque town on the Isle of Mull. Located near the waterfront, overlooking the Sound of Mull, the location is a stunning backdrop for whisky production.

History & Ownership
The distillery has a long and storied history, with whisky production dating back to 1798. Originally known as the Ledaig Distillery, it was later renamed Tobermory Distillery. In 1993, production of the peated malt whisky was revived under the Ledaig name, while the unpeated whisky continued to be produced under the Tobermory name. The Distillery is currently owned by Distell Group Limited, a South African-based international beverage company. Distell acquired the distillery in 2013 as part of its expansion into the Scotch whisky market.

Production Style & Core Range
Ledaig is a heavily peated spirit with phenolic levels comparable to those found in Islay whiskies. The core range includes: Ledaig 10 Year Old (the flagship expression, aged for a decade in oak barrels, offering a balance of peat smoke, malt sweetness and maritime character). Ledaig 18 Year Old (a more mature expression with deeper complexity, showcasing rich and layered flavours of smoke, fruit and oak). Ledaig 25 Year Old: A limited edition release, aged for a quarter of a century, offering a rare and refined expression of the Ledaig style.

Visitor Centre 
Tobermory Distillery offers guided tours and tastings for visitors, providing insights into its history, production methods and process. The tours often include a visit to the distillery's warehouses and the opportunity to sample a range of Ledaig whiskies.
