In 1797 John Sinclair, an innovative seaweed merchant, applied for a lease of land known as Ledaig – pronounced ‘letch-ick’ – meaning ‘safe harbour’. After Sinclair’s first application was rejected, he persevered, stayed true to his original vision, and a year later the distillery was established.

Despite a colorful history marked by closures, financial problems and even a name change, today Tobermory is a thriving, expressive and unique distillery, true to its idyllic location on the Hebridean Isle of Mull.

The Sinclair range pays tribute to our founder, John Sinclair, with a range of delicious whiskeys handcrafted at our distillery. This Ledaig Rioja Finish is the first release in this series.

Inspired by the Spanish galleon that sank off Tobermory harbor more than 400 years ago. We believe to have been full of jewels, and we’ve finished our smoky Ledaig signature expression in hand-selected Rioja casks in honor of the Spanish treasure buried deep from our coastline.

Made with heavily peated barley before maturing in ex-bourbon casks, and finished in hand-selected Spanish Rioja casks, this single malt contains powerful flavors of smoke, spice, grapes and sweet berries, with a lingering saltiness.

The color is vibrant and sings of rich, red Rioja, giving it a beautiful, vibrant hue.

It is the very definition of the expressive nature of our distillery.
