    Hunter Laing Kinship Collection 6 x 70cl with Gift Box / Feis Ile 2019

    To celebrate the commencement of distilling operations at their Ardnahoe distillery on Islay, Hunter Laing released a third selection of six bottlings, following on from the original Kinship collection in 2017 (celebrating the commencement of construction), and the second in 2018 (celebrating the completion).

    The 2019 Kinship collection was released exclusively to visitors of Islay's Feis Ile festival, and were available to buy at the Ardnahoe gift shop.

    Feis Ile, also known as the Islay Festival of Music and Malt had humble beginnings. It traces it origins back to 1985 and the establishment of The Islay Festival Association after it was realised that an event celebrating Gaelic, music and culture would drive tourism to the island. The inaugural event was rtwo weeks of music, drama and workshops with ceilidhs, concerts and dances in the evening. The first whisky tasting took place as a festival event in 1990, and ten years later the island's distilleries began to be directly involved, organising their annual open days to coincide with it. Today it is one of the biggest events on the whisky calendar, annually drawing hundreds of revellers, and turning out an increasingly sought-after batch of limited edition whiskies like this.
