Nestled on the eastern edge of Islay since 1846 lies Caol Ila. An unsung hero of the island whose name is the Gaelic for “The Sound of Islay” – the narrow stretch of sea that separates Islay from the neighbouring island of Jura.
A silent corner of Scotland, The Sound of Islay is known as an oasis of calm where the air stills and the sea quietens to a whisper. Facing eastward, Caol Ila is one of the first distilleries to feel the warmth of the morning sun. Where every 24 hours, first light dances across The Sound of Islay, illuminating a fleeting path to the distillery’s door. Rays that flood through the windows to kiss the copper stills. Approximately 6,400 sunrises over 175 years that have left a mark. This rare warmth and lightness is captured in our liquid.

Caol Ila 175th Anniversary 24 Year Old:
An elegant Islay Single Malt with a sumptuous cornucopia of fresh fruits on the nose, followed by a powerfully peaty whisper of smoke. On first sip an intense sweetness lights up the palate, balanced with a kiss of salt and a delicate kick of pepper. A long, warm finish with a prickle of soft spice, rich cocoa and the lingering smoke of glowing campfire embers.
Nose: Clean and fresh with a whisper of camp-fire smoke and a subtle hint of rich, buttery pastry Palate: A soft honeyed sweetness balanced with a prickle of sea salt and light smoke
Finish: A long and warming finish with a light charred smokiness and a delicate kick of spice.
