Description

Clynelish was built in 1819 by the 1st Duke of Sutherland at a cost of 750. By the end of the century the demand for its whisky was such that no trade orders were accepted. This led to the distillery being purchased by Ainslie & Co.,

blenders from Leith, who increased capacity. By 1930 the distillery was owned by Scottish Malt Distillers. During the 2nd World War production was halted but recommenced in 1945 and continued until 1967. With the installation of

electricity a new larger distillery was built next to the old one, with 3 pairs of stills as opposed to one. The new distillery assumed the Clynelish name. This was not the end for the old distillery. It was renamed Brora and production

recommenced in 1969 and continued until 1983 when it closed.
