- In 1819 the Marquis of Stafford founded Clynelish distillery. He went on to become the first Duke of Sutherland after marrying into the Sutherland family. It was later bought by James Ainslie and Heilborn, a blending company in Glasgow, in 1896, who rebuilt it. The very same floor malting and kiln are used to this day. In 1967, a new distillery was build right across the road from the Cleynelish distillery. This distillery was also called Cleynelish. The former then changed its name to Brora in 1969, which means 'the bridges river' in Old Norse.
The Brora distillery closed in 1983, after becoming a subsidiary so Diageo. However, the buildings are still used by Cleynelish as a visitors centre and warehouse. Today it has a capacity of 402 million litres per year.
Nose: Light candle wax, with some sugar. A faint floral fragrance. Scented candle wax comes up with water. Dried flowers on a beach. Later, brown sugar. Body: Firm, light to medium. Palate: Pleasant creamy mouthfeel; maritime generally. Finish: Some salt, dryish yet an attractive, even slightly bitter finish.
