"Port Askaig is a range of Islay single malt whiskies that embodies the unique spirit of Islay and its people. Nestled into the north coast of the island, the town of Port Askaig has been the gateway to Islay for hundreds of years; it therefore seemed appropriate to name our whisky after this magical place. There is no distillery in the town of Port Askaig, which gives us the opportunity to select the finest casks from distilleries around Islay and enables you to make your own journey of discovery. Port Askaig whiskies are always elegant and characterful, and epitomise the essence of Islay." Port Askaig
Nestled into the north coast of the island, Port Askaig has been the gateway to Islay for hundreds of years. For many, it is the start of a journey that will stay with them for a lifetime.
Port Askaig is a range of Islay single malt whiskies that embodies the unique spirit of Islay and its people. Its character brings together the robust smokiness and soft fruitiness found in this beguiling island. The range has been developed to appeal to the most discerning of whisky connoisseurs while also appealing to the novice whisky drinker. We have selected exceptional casks of Islay single malt and created a range that we believe will become recognised as an Islay classic.
Limited Batch - Each expression within the range is bottled in limited batches. While recognising that each bottling will vary, the aim is to achieve a consistency of quality and character over time. To ensure each whisky maintains its original flavour and character, the whiskies are not chill-filtered and no colouring is added.
Tradition evolved - In a world of change, we believe there is still a place for tradition. However, one that embraces evolution and new ideas required to make it even better. We believe that the expert cask selection and traditional yet contemporary look of the packaging will ensure Port Askaig stands shoulder to shoulder with Islay’s more established brands for many years to come.
