About Islay Single Malts

Islay whisky is Scotch whisky made on Islay or Ile in Gaelic, the southernmost of the Inner Hebridean Islands located off the west coast of Scotland. There are eight active distilleries on the island, as of early 2008, with a ninth being readied for production. Islay is a centre of 'whisky tourism', and hosts a 'Festival of Malt and Music' known as Fis le each year at the end of May, with events and tastings celebrating the cultural heritage of the island.
