Strathmill Whisky

Strathmill Distillery began as a meal mill, driven by water from the River Isla in Keith. Built in 1892, it was originally named Glenisla-Glenlivet, but its name was changed three years later when it was acquired by the London gin distiller W&A Gilbey. When Gilbeys merged with Justerini & Brooks in 1962, Strathmill became a key filling for J&B Rare and as a result is very uncommon as a single malt – the only proprietary expression is a 12 Years Old in Diageo’s Flora & Fauna range, first released in 2001.
