We are delighted to welcome visitors to the Gaelic Whisky and Gaelic Gin Shop, tucked in amongst the historic buildings of Eilean Iarmain that sit at the water’s edge overlooking the old stone pier and the water of the Sound of Sleat.
In 1976, Sir Iain Noble set up Pràban na Linne Ltd, The Gaelic Whiskies, to provide authentic whisky for the Gaelic speaking islands of Scotland. Our company is one of the few independent businesses in the Scotch Whisky industry, and one of very few with its headquarters in the Hebridean Islands of Scotland. In keeping with tradition, our whiskies are unchilfiltered, which ensures that the whiskies are of unequalled quality and historical authenticity. The Gaelic Whiskies pioneered the re-introduction of unchilfiltered whisky. It is the traditional method, producing the best whisky, and was employed by the Gaels when they first invented Uisge Beatha. As a result, the whiskies retain all the original elements of purity, softness and smoothness.
Following an illustrious tradition of the Isle of Skye, Sir Iain acquired what is rumoured to be an illicit whisky still, which Lucilla Noble has had converted to distil Gaelic Gin. The traditional copper still, with its cooling worm housed in an old whisky cask, is identical to the smugglers’ stills of old. With the recent addition of a botanical infusing basket halfway along the copper lyne arm, the illicit whisky still is now perfectly at home distilling Gaelic Gin, legally of course! Influenced by the copper of the still and the softness of the Isle of Skye water, the resulting spirits are exceptional; well rounded, richly aromatic and beautifully balanced.
