The Tamnavulin distillery was founded in 1966 in the village of Tomnavoulin alongside the River Livet. The distillery was mothballed in 1996 but was reopened ten years later. Part of the premises was formerly used for carding wool, and the distillery takes its name from ‘the mill on the hill’. Or was it ‘pig in a wig’? 'Moth on a sloth on a cloth'? Perhaps our Gaelic is not as good as we first thought…
Nose: Fragrant. Waxy floral notes with some fresh basil. Fruity with persimmon and jackfruit. Some linseed putty there too.
Palate: Sweet, soft and mouth coating. Very fruity with ripe melon and persimmons while peppery spices add interest.
