Oban

Oban Little Bay Scotch Whisky

Oban Little Bay is crafted by selecting small batches of their finest single malt whiskies, and marrying the whiskies in their smallest casks to allow more contact with the wood. This unique process, combined with the expert nose and palate of Malt Master, Dr. Matthew Crow, delivers a richer, smoother OBAN® expression with the signature distillery character of citrus and sea salt.

Oban Little Bay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Oban is one of Scotlands oldest and smallest distilleries. It was founded in 1794 and the West Highland port town of the same name has grown around the distillery. It is the one Single Malt Scotch Whisky in which the rich, complex flavours of the Highlands meet and mingle with the peaty, maritime character of the Islands. Balancing autumn fruits and sea air, Oban whisky owes its rich and rewarding Highland character to a very long fermentation process. The tiny lamp glass-shaped copper pot stills that make Obans Scotch are among the smallest in Scotland, and the liquor they distil is slowly condensed in wooden worm tubs outside among the rooftops, exposed to the salted sea air, bringing a distinct depth of flavour said to go very well with salted caramel.

Oban 11 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Special Release )

Nestled at the frontier of the Hebrides Islands, Oban Distillery stands as a testament to two centuries of craftsmanship, authenticity and exceptional taste. Founded in 1794 by brothers Hugh and John Stevenson, the distillery began as the Oban Brewing Company, producing the renowned 'Cowbell Ale' before venturing into whisky distillation the following year. Throughout its storied history, Oban Distillery has weathered changes in ownership and witnessed the evolution of the bustling town that grew around it. However, its unwavering commitment to excellence and tradition has remained constant, earning recognition when Oban 14 Year Old was named one of six Classic Malts embodying the Western Highlands region in 1989. Today, Oban stands as one of the smallest whisky makers in Scotland, a fact that underscores the distinct character of its products. With just two small stills, the distillery prioritizes quality, authenticity and heritage over mass production. The meticulous process includes a five-day fermentation of malted barley to develop rich, nuanced flavors, as well as a deliberate rest for the stills after each run to preserve purity and taste. Embracing the belief that time is essential to the aroma, mouthfeel and palate of its whisky, Oban ages its spirits with utmost care. This dedication to craftsmanship over speed has defined the distillery for over 200 years, allowing its whisky—and its story—to speak for themselves, without the need to clamor for attention. In the words of the distillery, "We’ve remained anchored to our process for over 200 years and continue to value craftsmanship over speed." The Special Releases collection is a highly-anticipated, limited annual assortment of exquisitely crafted, rare and valuable natural cask-strength single malt Scotch whiskies, showcasing selected Diageo distilleries each year, featuring a variety of ages and spirit profiles.
