Islay belongs to the Inner Hebrides in Scotland. The island lies between the Isle of Jura and Northern Ireland. From Ireland, the whisky once crossed over to Islay and thus entered Scotland. The most important place is Bowmore. Other places of interest are Port Ellen and Port Charlotte. The population is just over 3000. With its 8 distilleries, 6 of which produce a smoky whisky, Islay is formally a separate whisky region. It is therefore also known as the Whisky Island.
