Our Gaelic Whiskies and Gins

Pràban na Linne was one of the first companies to market traditional unchilfiltered whisky, in pursuit of optimum quality and historical authenticity, which in keeping with the custom of old and following the best of whisky-making traditions, ensures a whisky of exceptionally soft and smooth character with a long lingering finish, acclaimed by connoisseurs worldwide.

Distilled on the Isle of Skye, our unique traditional copper still inspires Uisge Lusach’s well rounded aromatics and refined rich texture. The juniper is beautifully balanced by a lemon citrus brightness and delicate notes of warming spice. This is a hugely characterful gin, distilled from the heart.
