About Oban

Pronounced OH-bun Meaning Little ban

Oban is one of Scotlands oldest working distilleries, having been established in 1794 by John and Hugh Stevenson, who were also largely responsible for the creation of the town itself.

Oban was silent for several years during the 1930's and closed again between 1968 and 1972, when a major programme of refurbishment was undertaken.

When United Distilleries launched it's classic malts selection in 1988, Oban was selected to represent the Western Highlands.

Oban is one of the very few surviving Scottish distilleries to be located in the centre of a town.

Distillery in the center of the town, near the harbour and close to the sea, but no maritime flair. Small range of scotch, but distillery exclusive bottles!
