In 1976, Sir Iain Noble set up Pràban na Linne Ltd, The Gaelic Whiskies, to provide authentic whisky for the Gaelic speaking islands of Scotland (Isle of Skyy). The company is independently owned and one of very few with its headquarters in the Hebridean Islands of Scotland. In keeping with tradition, their whiskies are unchilfiltered. This method was employed by the Gaels when they first invented Uisge Beatha. As a result, the whiskies retain all the original elements of purity, softness and smoothness.
