Clynelish distillery was established in 1819 and the Duke of Sutherland is to take all the credits. It is the only distillery in Sutherland. The distillery is situated in Brora, a popular holidaying location very close to Inverness. Brora has charming views of the seas and hills and the Clynemilton burn erupts golden seams from within the rocks. It is this springs that supply the Clynelish Distillery with its water that is used in the production of the malt whisky from its 6 copper stills that are subjected to extensive blending.
There is 14-year-old Highland whisky made by this company and available at designated outlets with containers that are customized with the distillery’s ‘wildcat’ logo on it.
You can book private tours or come as a group and enjoy a memorable experience when you visit Clynelish Distillery and Visitors’ Centre.
Getting there: Clynelish is located just 1 mile northward of Brora and that’s if you’re using the A9 Inverness-Thurso road.
