PRE-ORDER FOR BOTTLING & DISTRIBUTION IN JANUARY 2025
The island of Tiree is the most westerly of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The low-lying island Tiriodh, in Gaelic, translates to ‘Land of Corn’, or possibly ‘Tir-I’, the land or granary of Iona.
Historically, the economy of Tiree had been based on the production of grain since ancient times. Renowned for fertile and easily worked soil and long growing seasons, the island was unique in the Hebrides.
Tiree was also famous for the production of whisky and, at one time, supplied a number of the neighbouring islands.
TIREE WHISKY COMPANY LTD was established in 2012 to preserve and promote the island’s whisky heritage and to revive distilling on the island. Much has changed in Tiree since the last legal still was extinguished in the 1800s but the techniques and processes used in the production of the spirit have changed little.
Our FIRST RELEASE has been handcrafted by mashing unpeated malted barley in a small oak mash tun, distilled over direct flame in small copper pot stills and matured less than 100 metres from the North Atlantic Ocean in specially selected American Oak ex-Bourbon barrels as well as our first cask, a 50L Virgin Oak cask, before spending a further two years in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks from Spain’s finest producers. The result is the first expression of Tiree Whisky in over 200 years.
We, at the Isle of Tiree Distillery, hope to ensure no further years pass without casks being laid down; that islanders and others can enjoy, today and long into the future, a spirit once lovingly crafted by their ancestors.

Founders, Tiree Whisky Company Ltd
