There are close to 800 Scottish islands, but only a handful of them are inhabited. They are technically part of the Highlands region according to the Scottish Whisky Association, but the islands are worth grouping together into their own whisky region due to the eclectic mix of whisky they produce.
As well as the whisky hotspot of Islay, the Scottish islands also boast famous distilleries on Jura, Arran, Mull, Skye and Orkney.
There are a lot of different characters to be found within Island whisky, from light and citrus flavours to full-on smoky Highland peat flavours. What brings Island whisky together though is the slight salinity in the whisky thanks to the proximity to the sea.
