Closed Distilleries

Islay has also been the home of a number of distilleries which are now closed, the most famous being Port Ellen, which operated from 1825 to 1983. There is still a maltings at Port Ellen, which supplies many of the Islay distilleries with malted barley to their individual specifications. In March 2007 Bruichladdich Distillery announced the reopening of the distillery at Port Charlotte (Port Sgioba in Gaelic), which was closed in 1929, and was also known as the Lochindaal Distillery.
