Nc'Nean is one of the most interesting distilleries in Scotland. It lies at Drimnin on the very isolated Morvern peninsula, overlooking the Sound of Mull and Tobermory Harbour. The distillery was started by Annabel Thomas; Thomas left her job in London in 2013 and spent four years raising funds for the distillery. Distilling began in 2017, and the first Whisky debuted in 2020.
Sustainability is a key driving force for Nc'Nean; it was the first distillery in the UK to reach net zero carbon emissions during Whisky production, renewable electricity is generated from its own biomass plant, emissions are offset by forest planting and 100% recycled glass is used in the bottling process (all of which is done by hand at the distillery).
