- Strathmill was converted into a distillery in 1891, from the Strathisla corn and flour mill, in the village of Keith. The distillery was officially known as Glenisla-Glenlivet distillery until it was bought by W & A Gilbey who also owned Glen Spey. The distillery was incorporated into IDV in 1962 and has subsequently came under the ownership of GuinnessUDV. The distillery was modernized in 1965, which saw the distillery double from 2 to 4 stills.
The Flora and Fauna single malt series were launched in 1992 by the then owner, United Distillers. The idea of the launch was to illustrate the differences in Scottish malt whisky regions. A total of 26 expressions were released. Initially the range was bottled at 43% but later some expressions were released as Cask Strength. Diageo has since taken over ownership of United Distillers and thus, the Flora and Fauna range. Diageo discontinued the series in 2010.
The range includes single malt bottlings from the following distilleries: Aberfeldy, Auchroisk, Aultmore, Balmenach, Bladnoch, Blair Athol, Royal Brackla, Coal Ila, Clynelish, Craigellachie, Daluaine, Dufftown, Glendullan, Glen Elgin, Glenlossie, Glen Spey, Inchgower, Linkwood, Mannochmore, Mortlach, Pittyvaich, Rosebank, Teaninich, Speyburn, Strathmill.
The nose is quite soft yet very fruity. A hint of grassy greenness with a nuttiness, there are notes of cut herbs and apples, hints of cut hay. The palate is silken smooth in delivery. Notes of winter spice and vanilla custard, there is a nutty oiliness which carries everything gentle. The finish is soft and slightly herbal with a peppered delivery.
