It’s Brora & Clynelish Week here at Mark Littler Ltd!
Brora & Clynelish have a history like no other; intertwined since the founding of the original Clynelish distillery in 1819.
Clynelish distillery was built in 1819 by the Duke of Sutherland. In 1968, another distillery was built to keep up with the demand for blends. However, later the same year the original Clynelish was temporarily mothballed, before being resurrected, first as Clynelish B, and then as Brora. Brora, however, was relatively short-lived, and was closed in 1983. To the delight of whisky fans around the world, in 2017 Diageo announced plans to revive Brora. We can hope to see the distillery operation again in late 2021, running alongside its sister distillery, Clynelish.
