Pràban na Linne, producers of The Gaelic Whiskies, is a small niche whisky company on the Isle of Skye.  Focussing on quality, it remains one of the few independent businesses in the Scotch Whisky industry, and one of the few with its headquarters in the Scottish Hebrides.

The principal brands of the premium range of The Gaelic Whiskies are the Tè Bheag; an exceptional connoisseurs’ blend, with a high malt content aged in sherry casks, the MacNaMara classic; a lighter blend, 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 continue to be awarded international medals in recognition of their outstanding quality.

The Story

Founded in 1976, by the Scottish entrepreneur Sir Iain Noble, The Gaelic Whiskies were initially developed to provide authentic whisky, of quality, for the connoisseurs of the Gaelic speaking Hebridean Islands of Scotland.

The premium range was designed and developed with the names of the whiskies reflecting the rich linguistic and cultural heritage of Scottish Gaelic.

Pràban na Linne is the expression used in Gaelic to describe a “small smugglers’ enterprise on the Sound of Sleat”, and The Gaelic Whiskies’ shop and headquarters are located on the idyllic Sleat peninsula, by the historic stone pier of Eilean Iarmain, with spectacular views overlooking the water of the Sound towards the far hills of mainland Knoydart.

The Gaelic Whiskies have gained an international recognition and are widely respected by discerning connoisseurs.
