    The Founding of Oban Distillery

    Situated in the quaint coastal town of Oban, the distillery was established by two visionary brothers, Hugh and John Stevenson, in 1794. Originally traders from Glasgow, they saw Oban's potential, not just for its picturesque landscapes, but for its strategic location ideal for whisky shipping.

    Despite facing numerous challenges, including two World Wars and various economic downturns,

    Oban distillery has remained in operation, an enduring symbol of resilience and dedication.

    Influence of Geography
