The distillery dates back to 1881 and has many tales to tell. Bunnahabhain has been part of the island’s history since 1881 and we have a lot of wonderful correspondence with stories of craft, heritage and adventure. http://bunnahabhain.com/images/uploads/general/Our-History-header.png One such story is hinted at in these letters from 1889. On the left, is a letter from the management of that day, informing the Bunnahabhain distillery manager that ‘dramming’, the practice of allowing workers a non-duty paid drink during the working day, was to be halted on orders from The Board. The second letter is a full and informative, handwritten description of the distillery - right down to the type and number of valves beneath each still. Well, when you love your craft as much as everyone here does, there’s no such thing as too much detail. This is just a taste of our historical records, the majority of which are now stored in the Glasgow University archives for safekeeping.
