Praban na Linne – The Gaelic Whiskies
Not open to the public.
Praban na Linne is a family-run whisky distillery, the only distillery in the Hebrides to have its headquarters in the Hebrides themselves. They produce a range of whiskies that are not chill-filtered: the chill-filtering process, common to most whiskies, removes residual proteins and esters for greater visual clarity in the finished product but at the cost, some believe, of sacrificing some flavour. Non-chill-filtered whisky tends to have a more complex taste but can cloud when chilled. The company produces three whiskies: Poit Dhubh, a blended malt (available in 21- and 30- year old blends); Te Bheag, a high-malt blended whisky; and Mac na Mara, a lighter blend. Products are available from the online shop (UK mail order only) as well as selected retailers and wholesalers all over Scotland, England and Worldwide.
