The name "Tobermory" is derived from the Gaelic "Tobar Mhoire", which means "Well of Mary", and relates to the well and chapel of St. Mary. Tobermory Distillery is one of Scotland's oldest operational Malt Whisky distilleries and celebrated its 200th anniversary in 1998.

Although it was not purchased by Burn Stewart until 1993, the distillery was fully established in 1823. The distillery was purchased by Burn Stewart in 1993, at which point the company invested in a major upgrade to enable long term malt whisky production at Tobermory.

Many Island and Islay malts tend to be heavily peated. Tobermory, however, is only lightly peated, it draws its overtones only from the water on the Island. This makes it particularly easy to drink, and is why it serves as the perfect introduction to Island Malt Scotch Whiskies.

Today Tobermory distillery produces two different single malts, Tobermory and Ledaig. The Tobermory malt is lighter than the peated Ledaig, from the same distillery, the ten year old Tobermory has a nuttiness with a touch of toffee.

Also see Ledaig Whisky for more info on the Tobermory distillery and the whiskies it produces.
