New Clynelish Whisky Distillery in Brora

Located in the village of Brora, on the east coast of the Sutherland district of Highland, the Clynelish Distillery opened in 1967. The first distillery here was founded here in 1819 by Elizabeth Leveson-Gower, Countess of Sutherland (1765 - 1839), as a means to regenerate the local economy and operated almost continuously until the new plant was built. The distillery still draws its water from the Clynemilton Burn.

Clynelish is classed as a Highland Malt and is today operated by global conglomerate Diageo.
