Tobermory 21 Year is a Whisky Foundation Exclusive. Distilled at Tobermory Distillery in 1995 and then aged for 21 years. This whisky was released in 2016 by Wilson & Morgan, a renowned independent bottler.
Another Island distillery, Tobermory is located on the Hebrian island of Mull, population about 2800. Founded in 1798 by John Sinclair, it was actually one of the first companies in the town of Tobermory which had only been founded as a fishing ground a few years earlier. Sinclair had been a traveling merchant who got the idea of founding a whisky distillery where there was none. It has changed hands more often than we can count, first in 1823, then in 1890, again in 1916 and so on. It has also been closed down a few times, the first time being in 1916 due to prohibition which devastated the whisky industry. It opened again in 1931 and was variously open and closed for the next decades.
