The Gaelic Whiskies

Praban na Linne, producers of The Gaelic Whiskies is a small boutique whisky company on the Isle of Skye. Founded in 1976, by the Scottish entrepreneur Sir IaIn Noble of Eilean Iarmain, to provide authentic whiskies of quality, for the connoisseurs of the Gaelic speaking Hebridean Islands of Scotland. The company continues to focus on quality and remains one of the few independent businesses in the Scotch Whisky industry.

Praban na Linne is a Gaelic expression which describes “a small smugglers enterprise” on the Sound of Sleat and alludes to the historic setting of the company’s head office and whisky shop located by the old stone pier of Eilean Iarmain overlooking the waters of the Sound of Sleat.

The principle brands of The Gaelic Whiskies are Tè Bheag, an exceptional connoisseur’s blend with a high malt cotent aged in sherry casks and for those who prefer a lighter blend, the MacNaMara, also available finished in Guyanan Rum casks as well as the fine vatted malts of Poit Dhubh, bottled at 8 years and 12 years with a 21 year old to satisfy the most epicurean tastes.

The Gaelic Whiskies are widely respected and have gained international recognition for their quality.
