Brora

The Brora distillery was built in 1819 by the Marquess of Stafford , although it was known as "Clynelish" until the opening of the Clynelish Distillery in 1968, whereupon the name of the original Clynelish was changed to "Brora". Between May 1969 and July 1973, Brora produced a heavily peated whiskey to supply for blending; this is down to a shortage of Islay whisky caused by a drought in that region. Most of the whiskey produced as Brora after 1973 is in the lightly peated Highland style.

In early 1983, production at Brora which was stopped and the distillery was mothballed.

On October 9, 2017, Diageo announced that it will re-open the Brora distillery with production resuming in 2020.
