The Islay Boys are Donald MacKenzie and Mackay Smith, from the villages of Port Charlotte and Portnahaven respectively, both situated on the Rhinns peninsula on the west of Islay, the mythical whisky island. They grew up amongst the eight distilleries on Islay, and in their veins flows not blood, but Islay Whisky.

Magnus III “Barelegs”, Viking King of Norway, ruled the islands of Scotland in the 11th century. He adopted the Highland tradition of the kilt, hence his nickname!  Bärelegs Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a single malt from one of Islay’s most well-known distilleries, which must retain a secret! Islay is famous for producing peated, smoky whisky, and ours has a refreshing sweet peatiness, balanced by a crisp finish.

Ketill Flatnose was a Viking King of the Isles, a seafaring warrior who ruled the vast, rugged and wild western seaboard of Scotland in the late 9th century. Flatnöse Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is an all-malt Scotch whisky, with a good share of traditional peated Islay single malts, giving a reach peaty touch. The smokiness is balanced by hints of honey and candied fruit.  Flatnöse Blended Scotch Whisky is a rich, full-flavoured blend, with hints of pepper and smoke.   Of course, there is Islay single malt whisky in the blend, to add spicy, peppery notes – we wouldn’t have it any other way.
