A Real Place

Port Askaig is a small but important village on the north east coast of Islay. Nestled on ancient granite rocks along side the Sound Of Islay channel, Port Askaig was and still is the gateway to Islay. From century old invaders and traders of the past to the tourists, whisky explorers and Isle lovers of today. Our whisky is named after this special place.

our story


Quality & Longevity

Port Askaig uses casks that have been meticulously matured and blended by Master Blender, Oliver Chilton. Each expression is made purely to reflect the essence of Islay’s beauty, its whisky, and its lifestyle. This elegant, balanced, and refined liquid offers flavours from bonfire smoke and peaty bogs, to soft salty sea air.
