the story for the design


Islay is a remarkable jewel of an island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland.

Known as the Queen of the Hebrides, beautiful Islay is outstandingly rich in landscape, culture and heritage, craft and produce. It even has fairer weather than the Scottish mainland, due to its position in the Gulf Stream.

Islay is also a whisky lover's paradise, with no fewer than eight distilleries on the island, producing world-renowned, distinctively peaty whiskies.
