Ledaig 21 Douglas Laing Old Particular, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
Mull’s only distillery has a patchy history beset with closures and name changes as it was passed around from owner to owner. Founded in 1798 by local kelp merchant John Sinclair, the distillery was one of the first to take out a distilling licence in 1823. During the winter months they produce a heavily peated malt, known as Ledaig. One of only 256 bottles available.
