    Brora Single Malt Whisky

    Situated in the coastal town of Brora in Sutherland, about an hour north of Inverness, this now famous ‘lost distillery’ was closed in 1983 and its rare malts are very highly sought after. The limited 160 bottling of Brora 40 year-old released in 2014 is the most expensive Diageo whisky ever, priced at £6,995.

    The distillery was founded in 1819 by the Marquess of Stafford and was originally named Clynelish, until the opening of the new Clynelish distillery in 1968. The whisky created between 1968 and 1983, when the decision was taken to mothball the distillery, has acquired an excellent reputation in the whisky community. As such there have been many calls to reopen its doors, but there are currently no plans to do so and the longer the distillery lies dormant the less feasible this becomes. This has only made the limited bottles of Brora which do exist, and are quickly diminishing, all the more valuable.

    The elusive Brora whiskies are known for their peaty taste, which was achieved by using more heavily peated malt during production. The distillery was often considered to have produced the most peaty malt in the Highlands and has been nicknamed ‘The Lagavulin of the North’.
