Bunnahabhain shares its name with the village that grew up around it. In effect, the development of the Bunnahabhain distillery created a community dependent upon it for employment. In doing so, an entire village emerged, complete with schoolhouse and village hall. Prior to the building of the distillery, the adjacent area was inhospitable and uninhabited.

Bunnahabhain was designed from the start as a high-output malt distillery with 95% of the malt whisky produced their going into blends such as The Famous Grouse and Black Bottle. Built round a courtyard, in a style that resembles a Bordeaux chateau, the distillery today is little changed.

Bunnahabhain's water is piped from streams in the surrounding hills and is therefore less peaty than might be expected. It is sweeter than most of the other Islay malts, with a smooth initial palate and long full finish. Lighter than the Islay style, with a full round flavour. A popular after-dinner dram.
