Caol Ila Distillery may have the most beautiful setting of any of Islay’s distilleries. It sits on the Sound of Islay directly across from the Paps of Jura, and when the skies are clear, you can see the Isle of Mull on the horizon. This is Caol Ila’s festival day during the Islay Festival of Malt and Music, and we’ll hear from distillery manager Billy Stitchell, taste some Caol Ilas, and talk to a local lobsterman and a precocious 3-year-old.
