Brora 35 yo comes from one of Diegeo’s iconic ‘lost’ distilleries has been sent a lifeline when it was announced that it was being resurrected along with Port Ellen.
Silent since 1983, they are both part of a £35m investment by Diageo which will see them both producing whisky again.
Brora was originally built in 1819 and was, until 1968, known as Clynelish – until a distillery of the same name opened up. Brora originally produced heavily peated whisky to make up for a blend shortfall from Islay due to a drought on the island.
Brora whisky from around the early 1970’s then took a more traditional Highland style.
