Oban Distillery, Oban

A distillery that's older than the town that surrounds it, Oban Distillery stands proud among the crags on the port of Oban. Despite having been in operation since 1794, the distillery is still one of the smallest in Scotland, with only two pot stills. It's these stills that produce the 14-year-old malt whiskey the distillery is known for. Take a short tour through the distillery and taste a malt in the shop, where you can also purchase a bottle to enjoy later.
