When brothers Hugh and John Stevenson arrived at the frontier of the Hebrides Islands in 1793, they found little more than a natural harbor and a windswept view. Here they opened the Oban Brewing Company, their ‘Cowbell Ale’ being the first production.
They started distilling whisky the following year.
The business remained in the Stevenson family for three generations, until local merchant Peter Cumpstie purchased it in 1830. In 1880, the railroad steamed into Oban, inaugurating a new age of improved communication and transport.
The distillery has changed ownership over the years and witnessed a bustling town grow up around it.
In 1989, Oban 14 Year Old was named one of six Classic Malts representing the Western Highlands region.
Flavors of orange peel, smoke, sea salt, and honey distinguish this full-bodied Highland malt.
