Key Facts

History -On 12 August 1948 a fire broke out in the store of the distillery. No Whiskey was destroyed, but grain in store and over 100 empty barrels were lost.[6] The distillery was rebuilt again in 1960 after a stillhouse fire completely destroyed the distillery. The distillery operates five stills; two wash stills and three spirit stills. All the stills use worm tubs (condensing coils) rather than a modern condenser, which are believed to give the Whiskey a "fuller" flavour (itself an indication of higher sugar content). During this early period, the Whiskey was produced using a triple distilling method, but changed to the more conventional double distilling in 1928. After the 1960 fire, five exact replicas of the original stills were constructed to preserve the original Talisker flavour. In 1972 the stills were converted to steam heating and the maltings floor was demolished. Talisker's water comes from springs directly above the distillery via a network of pipes and wells.[citation needed] The malted barley used in production comes from Muir of Ord. Talisker has an unusual feature—swan neck lye pipes. A loop in the pipes takes the vapour from the stills to the worm tubs so some of the alcohol already condenses before it reaches the cooler. It then runs back into the stills and is distilled again. Talisker now has an annual output of three and a half million litres of spirit. Talisker was the favourite Whiskey of writers Robert Louis Stevenson and HV Morton. In his poem "The Scotsman's Return From Abroad", Stevenson mentioned "The king o' drinks, as I conceive it, Talisker, Islay, or Glenlivet." In early 2020, Talisker came under scrutiny after a radiocarbon study suggested Talisker 1863 Whiskey was produced much later, either between 1957-58 or 2007-2014.
