Alexandre Vingtier's Islay Distillery Pictures

Islay Whisky News & Links in stencil

This evening I've got something I hope will of interest for many Islay whisky fans. Yesterday morning I spotted a set of Caol Ila distillery pictures on photo sharing site Flickr, soon followed by another of Lagavulin distillery. Having bookmarked them I left it for a while only to then discover later even more sets of Islay distilleries had been added. In a brief e-mail exchange I contacted the photographer, Alexandre Vingtier, congratulating him on his collection and ‘warning’ him I was going to mention it here. Here we go:

To get to see them all you need to go to the Islay, Scotland collection in Alexandre's photostream. In that collection you will then find the sets for most of Islay's distilleries:

Not included in this collection, but the Islands, Scotland collection, is a set from the distillery on Islay's neighbour Jura, Isle of Jura distillery.

There are so many pictures it's difficult to pick favourites. Still, the seemingly endless Ardbeg distillery - warehouse, the Bowmore distillery - warehouse # 1 / living wall, the Caol Ila distillery - still in front of the sea, the view of Kilchoman distillery from above, John at Laphroaig distillery - cutting peat bog and this ‘Owl’ at Lagavulin distillery (what's the story here, anyone know?) caught my eye.

I hope you'll enjoy Alexandre's pictures and find something you'll like or which reminds you of your visit(s) to an Islay distillery or two.
