Caol Ila Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson on the east coast of Islay, Caol Ila has been a prominent presence in the whisky landscape. It became part of DCL (now Diageo) in 1927 and operated until 1972 when the original distillery was replaced with a significantly larger capacity, solidifying its status as one of the largest producers on Islay thereafter.

Prior to 2002, Caol Ila was predominantly available through independent bottlings or as a key malt in Johnnie Walker blends. Since then, the distillery has introduced official age statements and other expressions. Typically matured in refill casks, Caol Ila's distinctive character harmoniously blends fresh green fruits, subtle grassiness, and juniper notes, complemented by distinct sea shore characteristics and a gentle layer of smoke.
