Té Bheag History

Sir Iain Noble, founder of the Edinburgh merchant bank Noble Grossart and staunch advocate of the Gaelic language, established Pràban na Linne in 1976. His ambition was to offer a series of Gaelic-inspired whiskies, the first of which was Té Bheag, launched in the company’s first year.

As a local landowner who was passionate about Gaelic heritage, Noble set out to establish local businesses that would be sustainable in the long term. He was the one of the founders of Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Scotland’s first Gaelic-language college situated near Praban na Linne’s HQ at Eilean Iarmain on Skye.
