    Clynelish Single Malt Whisky

    The original Clynelish distillery was founded in the village of Brora in 1819 by the Marquess of Stafford, notorious for his role in the Highland Clearances. It was subsequently rebuilt on a new site across the road in 1968, and the original Clyenlish distillery was renamed as the Brora distillery. The new Clynelish distillery building was designed following the blueprint of the Caol Ila distillery on Islay.

    Much like Brora (which was mothballed in 1983), Clynelish has a strong reputation within the whisky community. In the early days, Clynelish was so incredibly popular that only private customers were supplied and the distillery refused all trade orders. It is still widely regarded for the crisp fresh taste and subtle smoky aroma of its malts. The water used is drawn from the nearby Clynemilton Burn and despite its relative lightness (compared with Brora whiskies) they do use medium peated barley in production of the spirit.

    The sprit produced at Clynelish is most commonly used for inclusion in a number of Diageo blends, including the hugely popular Jonnie Walker labels. Since the release of a first official expression in 2003, single malts from Clynelish distillery have become more common both in official and independent bottlings. The single malts are aged in Oak casks for a minimum of 14 years, and the 14 year old expression is the distillery’s most popular single malt.
