A kiln of the Brora Distillery.Due to the closing in 1983 the amount of Brora whiskies is very limited. Today the most available bottles are vintages of the 70s and 80s with about 15 to 35 years of maturation. The distillery character is a lightly peated Highland scotch. There are still quite a lot of independent bottlings of the distillery.
Brora used to supply the blended whisky industry but only for a short period of time.
The distillery used to distil on 2 stills and the annual output was about 1 million liter of pure alcohol.
The Pot Stills
The wash still and the spirit still are both the same size. They have a volume of 13,500 litres. Both stills have a reflux bowl, but have long been abandoned.
The warehouses of the Brora Distillery.The warehouses are all flat dunnages with heavy bricked walls, which is typical for the slow maturing Scotch whisky.
The distillery was founded under the Name Clynelish by the Duke of Sutherland in 1819. In 1967 the new Clynelish distillery was built, and the old Clynelish was renamed to Brora distillery. In 1983 Brora was closed and the only things that are still being used are the warehouses.
