About the distillery

Distillery

Brora

Brora is a distillery located in the Scottish Highlands, near the village of Brora. It was founded in 1819 by the Marquess of Stafford, and was originally named Clynelish. The distillery was closed in 1983, but was reopened briefly in the 1990s to produce whisky for blending. Brora was known for producing peated whisky, which was unusual for a Highland distillery. The peat used in the production process was sourced locally, and gave the whisky a distinctive smoky flavor. The distillery also had its own malting floors, where the barley was malted by hand. One interesting fact about Brora is that it was one of the distilleries that was chosen to produce whisky for the Queen's Jubilee in 1977. The whisky was a special blend, and was bottled in commemorative bottles with a picture of the Queen on the label. Today, Brora whisky is highly sought after by collectors and connoisseurs, and bottles can fetch high prices at auction. The distillery itself has been closed for many years, but there are plans to reopen it in the near future, much to the delight of whisky lovers around the world.
