  • Port Askaig - Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    The Port Askaig Distillery is a collection of single malt whiskies distilled on the Scottish island of Islay and bottled under the brand name Port Askaig. The brand was established in 2009 by independent bottlers Elixir Distillers. These bottlers carefully select what they believe to be the most balanced single malts from the island to market under the Port Askaig name.

    Port Askaig is named after a small but significant village on the northeastern coast of Islay, known as the gateway to the island. Port Askaig whiskies reflect the unique character of Islay, known for its smoky, maritime notes and a certain fruitiness. The whiskies are non-chill filtered and contain no color additives to provide an unadulterated Islay experience.

    Popular releases include the Port Askaig 8 Year Old, appreciated for its fresh, peaty notes and slight saltiness. The Port Askaig 17 Year Old offers a deeper complexity with a combination of sweet and smoky aromas. The Cask Strength editions are also highly sought after and provide a more intense flavor experience.

    The production methods at Port Askaig are characterized by careful cask selection and artisanal craftsmanship. Maturation takes place in a mix of bourbon and sherry casks, giving the whiskies their multi-layered flavor profiles. Each cask is selected by Master Blender Oliver Chilton to capture the essence of Islay and the coastal influences in every drop.
