Limited stock
Built by Thomas MacKenzie, it coincided with Queen Victorias Diamond Jubilee which was no doubt an influencing factor when naming the distillery.
With a shaky start and history, Imperial Distillery started production in the summer of 1898 only to close a year later for over 20 years. Production did recommence in 1919 but, again, for only six years. The construction of Imperial
differs from other Speyside distilleries as it was built of red Aberdeen brick with an iron beam and pillar framework to make it fire resistant.
Imperial closed during the 1980s. It was purchased in 1989 by Allied Distillers who, reopened the distillery in 1991. It was mothballed in 1998.
