Description :Located in the pleasant town of Tobermory, with its painted houses, on the scenic island of Mull, the distillery was established by John Sinclair, a local merchant, in 1798. It was acquired by John Hopkins and Son, who owned it until 1916, but closed between 1930 and 1972, and from 1989 to 1993 when it was purchased by Burn Stewart Distillers and reopened. It has four stills, uses unpeated, malted barley, and water from a private loch near Mishnish. The distillery produces the Tobermory Single Malt Scotch Whisky, which is a fresh smooth and medium dry malt. The distillery offers tours and there is a visitor centre and shop.
