Tobermory 20 years old / 46,3%/ – Tobermory Distillery is beautifully located on the Inner Hebridean Isle of Mull. It was founded in 1798 but became fully operational in 1823. Throughout the 20th Century the distillery experienced lengthy period of closures and several changes in ownership. Between 1972 and 1993 two of its three owners filled for bankruptcy and the production was very erratic.
