Stiùireadair (pronounced 'stew-rahdur') is our newest and thrilling addition to our Bunnahabhain range of single malt whiskies. To create Stiùireadair, Dr Kirstie McCallum, our Master Blender, has carefully selected maturing spirit of varying ages from first and second fill sherry casks, housed in our coastline warehouses to construct a dram that truly exposes the coastal nature of our Bunnahabhain Islay single malt whisky.
Unpeated, un-chillfiltered and with the sherry influence everyone knows and loves with Bunnahabhain, Kirstie has crafted a fresh and vibrant new member of our single malt family.
A great whisky to celebrate all that is good about life! If you close your eyes while enjoying your dram, Stiùireadair ('Helmsman' in Gaelic) will guide you back to our distillery pier, looking out towards the Sound of Islay, while listening to the sea washing over Bunnahabhain's stony beach... Slainte!
