Braes of Glenlivet was founded in 1973, making it one of the newest malt distilleries. The distillery nestles against a mountain ridge and is not far from Chapelton. Production was expanded in 1975 and by 1978 the bulk of the malt
whisky produced was used as a component of the Chivas Regal blend. In 1995 the distillery changed its name to Braeval, so that it would not be confused with other distilleries in the area.
