Up until 1969 Brora Distillery was known under another name - Clynelish Distillery. During 1967-8 another distillery was built next to the then known Clynelish. This new modern distillery, which has six stills, then took over the name Clynelish. The old Victorian distillery, with only two stills, was then named 'Brora' Distillery and reopened in April 1969.
Unfortunately, Brora Distillery closed indefinitely in the 1980s, making the exceptional Islay-style malt produced during its short history extremely rare.
The Old Brora buildings which are in need of repair, still stand today and contain some of the original equipment of the distillery.
